Signed by her First Commanding Admiral Eugene Wilkinson

On January 17, 1955, Commander Admiral Eugene P. Wilkinson signaled this historic message from the USS Nautilus: �Underway on nuclear power.� The world�s first nuclear submarine, Nautilus would become the world�s most famous submarine, setting many endurance records for submerged operations (she could stay underwater for weeks at a time) and, in 1958, navigating under the North Pole. Hand-signed by Wilkinson, her first commanding officer, this black-and-white photograph is matted and framed in wood under glass. Certificate of authenticity included.
