Georgia Wednesday marked the 50th anniversary of a history-making ship. The first nuclear powered vessel used for commercial purposes sailed into Savannah on August 22nd, 1962. Even though the NS or Nuclear Ship Savannah only sailed for 10 years, its boosters say, it's still relevant today.
Georgia's oldest city is getting a historical marker that highlights its more recent past — the arrival of the NS Savannah, the world's first nuclear-powered passenger and cargo ship. The city's namesake ship first arrived 50 years ago in 1962.
