    The Nimitz-class supercarriers are a class of ten nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in service with the United States Navy. Instead of the usual diesal or or gas turbines they use two nuclear powered reactors.

    Here is a old documentary on the USS George Washington

    The most interesting thing is the amount of training and drills involved in maintaining a Carrier group. The people involved in running a supercarrier require extensive training and need to have 100% accuracy almost in everything they do. Truly amazing.
