SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — A retired engineer who's an expert on nuclear submarines will give a talk at the New York State Military Museum on how the U.S. Navy's missile-launching subs work.
Ray Misiewicz (MIS'-uh-witz) of Fort Edward will give his lecture Saturday afternoon at the museum in the downtown Saratoga Springs. He'll tell the story of the development of the American nuclear ballistic missile submarine fleet.
Misiewicz spent more than 40 years designing nuclear reactors for Navy submarines at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory outside Saratoga. He has lectured frequently about the U.S. Navy's nuclear submarines at venues throughout the Albany area.
The free lecture is sponsored by the Friends of the New York State Military Museum, a not-for-profit group which raises funds to help support the museum.
