She was an old ship, radiation does strange things to metal alloys and after a time its just too dangerous to operate.
I'm surprised though, being the worlds first nuclear aircraft carrier should entitle her to a better fate than the scrap heap, time will tell but it would surprise me if no effort is made to save her that fate. It wouldn't be the first time that the Navy tried to scrap a ship only to have it saved by public and private sector efforts.
