  1. nuclear-powered submarine

    A nuclear-powered submarine is a type of underwater naval vessel that is powered by a nuclear reactor. The reactor generates heat which produces steam that drives turbines and provides power for propulsion, and other systems on the sub. Nuclear-powered submarines are capable of operating underwater for extended periods without needing to surface for fuel or air, as the nuclear fuel lasts several years and provides a high level of sustained power. This type of submarine is commonly used for both military and scientific explorations.
