USS Nimitz, the nuclear powered carried dropping anchor off Chennai was a big news..

It is powered by two nuclear power plants and has 56 fighter jets on board, the 56 year old ship is one of the largest aircraft carriers in the world.

Fears of radiation from the ship have caused some fear among environmentalists and politicians.. But the visit is a sure shot way to boost US Indo military relations especially after the events of '98 after India exploded the nuclear bomb.
