[INFOGRAPHIC] by Geoffrey Ingersoll and Robert Johnson This cool infographic details the lifespan of the world's first nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise. There are two notable firsts in her life, the first nuclear carrier in service, and the first to retire. Check it out: @ http://static2.businessinsider.com/...2500/infographic-uss-enterprise.jpg?maxX=1200 A really neat piece with some interesting information. I once saw the Enterprise pass the battleship New Jersey and that was when I realized what a massive ship she is. She completely dwarfed what was once considered the biggest and deadliest ship in the world. Poor USNS New Jersey.
