Submarine Evolution

In Groton, Connecticut yesterday, I visited the Submarine Force Library and Museum. Unfortunately, the USS Nautilus was closed for repairs, but the museum was open and made for an interesting visit.

The picture above is of the entrance to the museum. The inner ring depicts the circumference of the pressure hull of the USS Holland, built in 1898 and commissioned as the first US Navy submarine in 1900. The outer ring depicts the circumference of the pressure hull of a modern Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine.
