Secret Submarine NR-1
I've been reading about the smallest nuclear submarine in the U. S. Navy, the NR-1, which was, in some ways, more like a spacecraft than a submarine. Fascinating stuff, or at least the parts the people involved can talk about are. The little sub (probably) did a lot of of interesting Cold War-ish things and plenty of it is still a deep, dark secret.

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
