It was a photoshopped (interesting how that's a verb now) picture. The man in the grey suit, the Teletype display, and the large TV in the grayscaled photo were done for a contest on The photo above is a display of a nuclear powered submarine's maneuvering room at the Smithsonian. I should have know that one right away, seeing as how I want my own recreational nuclear powered sub. I'd prefer a soviet era Typhoon Class sub though. Much bigger in side. is an excellent site for finding hoaxes and rumors. Curiously enough, though, they made my link to the correct photo bad. How nice of them.
