Before nuclear-powered engines were built, American submarines were unable to remain underwater for long periods of time. A true "underwater ship" did not exist until a more efficient fuel source was found. Today, nuclear-powered submarines, like those of the Los Angeles class, can stay underwater for months. The USS Hyman G. Rickover is on the "Los Angeles class" postage stamp. Rickover's efforts were instrumental in bringing nuclear power to U.S. subs. The hull number of the sub, 709, is seen below the flag on the sail.
