@The Goldey Family I doubt it, China and Russia save their money. They spend their taxes on benefiting their citizens, rather than the military. They manufacture everything the Americans purchase everyday.

Wouldn't 'Let's go get smarter together' or 'today' or something of the likes be a bit more appropriate, due to it being an instance of becoming smarter rather than a culmination of instances at once? I feel like 'let's go get smarter every day' for one specific instance of becoming smarter is a bit misplaced and misnomed in comparison, and leads to a moment of awkwardness in my mind; as if it's advice, rather than a welcoming invitation. Maybe it's a solo perception, but here's to hoping this mention of insight can provide some benefit. Cheers, Destin.

It's amazing that we humans go to such complex mechanics to do what mother nature has been doing for eons. Let's take lithium hydroxide to the next level. Scale up to mega mechanics to help the plant.

Dräger gas detectors with the annoying tubes still being used today? Takes me back to the best days of my life onboard BB-62 & BB-63. I did six months on the Vincennes after Desert Shield/Storm but the Tico cruiser fleet was never quite the same as sailing on and making history. Surely the Tico was more powerful, better defended than the Iowa class behemoths, and certainly safer in regards to modern design, and safety systems. But even in the 80's and 90's we were brash and bold. My Master Chief on the New Jessey was part of the original commissioning crew in WWII. My Senior Chief on the Missouri Served on her in Korea. Oh my the memories. Thanks!

Et comment produisent-ils les 78% d'azote impérativement nécessaires à la respiration ? parce qu'on ne respire pas que de l'oxygène... Si l'atmosphère du sous-marin n'était composée que d'oxygène elle serait extrêmement dangereuse. Hautement inflammable, hautement oxydante pour les objets comme pour les humains.. Donc la question est mal posée : ce qu'il fallait demander c'est "comment le sous-marin produit de l'AIR ?"

This is so old school. It's running on like Windows 87... plus the individual sniffers. Even in the mines we have digital crickets that monitor everything in the atmosphere. At the front of the nation's defence and with every life in the sub directly at risk. Would they not update to 2210 looking computers?

someone should tell the US navy that there are multi functional sniffers and detetocers out there with more then a single sensor to detec different kind of gas at once. like from Dräger would be maybe usefull on a ship or submarine since space is nothing you should vaste

This is amazing. Ive read, watched, listened, and question to learn about so many different things in this world. For some reason I fell there is never a good look into how submarines do what they do. I know a lot of that is for security reasons but it still feels ultra secret to me. I paused this video halfway just to comment that for me, it is amazing seeing even what these guys consider mundane, even though important. For many reasons even further than what is discussed here, submarines are a special breed that I find fascinating. Thank you so much for showing a true inside look!
