An atomic icebreaker is a plain steamer. The atomic reactor heats water that turns into steam that rotates turbines that activate generators that generate electricity that enters electric motors that set 3 marine propellers in motion.

The body depth at the place of ice breaking is 5 cm. Such a ship has a double bottom and won't have to retreat in case of a hole.

    Looks like a very cozy ship to be in a long journey through the icy waters. Though aren’t there too many tourists?

    So, nuclear powered ship requires pineapple can “repair” to control the leakage from the pipes. With what do they repair the reactors?

    I was a boiler technician in the U.S. Navy. If you ever caught just one drop of condensed steam on the top of your head you’d know the tin can is a very good idea until the valve can be isolated and repacked.
