ABSTRACT
This article explains the implications of news that an American nuclear-powered submarine called Nautilus had travelled swiftly and silently undersea for 8,000 miles. The ability to send fleets and to transport cargoes under icebound seas at vastly increased speeds over vastly increased distances has altered the geographical and geophysical framework of the world. Changes in sea power, and specifically undersea military and commercial navigation, may be the beginning of a revolution in strategic thinking. This voyage, taken in conjunction with the development of a ballistic missile also indicates potentialities for a new weapons system.
