  • How do nuclear submarines stay under water for months?


    Have you ever tried to hold your breath underwater and see how long you can go? Chances are you didn’t last very long.

    Well, nuclear submarines enable humans to stay underwater for months at a time without going back to the surface; taking those mere 1-minute records to a whole new level. But what is a nuclear submarine, and how can these submarines keep more than 100 people alive underwater for up to three months?

    A nuclear submarine, as you’d guess, is a submarine powered by a nuclear reactor. Nuclear power is particularly important for these vessels since they need to be at sea for long periods. However, the air supply is not their only problem. Apart from the fresh air, the crew in the nuclear submarines also needs fresh water and food.

    Thankfully, the submarines have the necessary gadgets to overcome these vital problems. For example, through a process called electrolysis, oxygen can be supplied from the seawater. However, considering the daily lives of the crewmates, the emission of CO2 is another problem. In addition to this, there are also humidity and odor concerns. Luckily, submarine technology has come far enough.

    If you want to learn more about these sneaky vehicles and want answers to questions like how does a nuclear submarine work, what are some crucial systems in submarines, and how deep can a submarine go, be sure to check out our video.

  • The Nuclear Powered Flying Aircraft Attack Carrier - Never Built CL-1201


    Check out for more:
    Diagrams of CL-1201 by Scott Lowther

    In 1969, Lockheed was tasked by the US air force to design a plane that was so big that it could carry 3000 troops, launch 22 parasite air to air jet fighters and fly for 41 days straight without landing. But it would never see the light of day, facing design challenges such as building a powerful enough nuclear reactor to how to even take off into the sky.

    Designed by Lockheed to find the upper size limit of aircraft using conventional 1969 materials and technology - This is the CL-1201, the biggest aircraft never built.

    The world of the late 60s was certainly an interesting one, America that faced enemies across the globe.

    While the Boeing 747 that had just taken to flight was considered for the airforce, Lockheed was put onto the track to develop something even more gargantuan. A giant city-sized flying aircraft carrier.

    The project would be dupped the CL-1201, based on the aerodynamic research for the previous CL-1170 - but with extensively increased dimensions.

    The airframe would measure a wingspan of 1120 feet, and be 560 feet long, giving the fuselage an interior space of 2 million cubic feet.

    For such a huge plane, conventional fuel wouldn't cut it - this sucker would be nuclear powered, with the reactor system giving out a combined 1.83 gigawatts - allowing this plane to fly 41 days straight at Mach 0.8 over 16,000 feet, only having to land because the crew would run out of food and water. the crew of 475, who would be needed to maintain operations for 24/7. The reactor itself wouldn't need to be refueled for over 1000 operation hours.

    You see there was actually two versions of this plane. The CL-1201-1-1 and the CL-1201-1-3. there was technically also a mystery CL-1201-1-2 but all information about it has been scrubbed - but bare with me we will get to that model later.

    The CL-1201-1-1 was dubbed the Attack Aircraft Carrier. It would carry eleven fighter bombers under each wing, and two more in the fuselage hangers, for a total of 24 aircraft. the documents they are listed as the F-4 Phantoms.

    It would be the command center for any military operation. The plane would also carry ten long-range attack missiles, with Lockheed not ruling out that their warheads would be nuclear-tipped. This plane would never land in enemy land, simply circling the battlefield at 30,000 feet and around 600 miles away.

    As for going deep behind enemy lines, that was up to the CL-1201-1-3, or dubbed, the logistic support aircraft or LSA.

    This version of the plane would be the carrier for the bulk of the mission, bringing drop troops and other equipmentMITs, or converted Boeing 707s that would fly troops and materials back and forth from the LSA. The LSA would have a fleet of five 707 MITs that would physically dock three at a time to the LSA.

    In addition to the 400 troops on the LSA, there would be 150 troops on each MIT, to a combined total of 1150 troops in the mini-fleet.

    But these aircraft wouldn't actually operate on their own. It would be a fleet group of a single attack aircraft carrier, and seven, Logisict support aircraft.

    In total, the combined fleet would carry 3896 ground troops, 6207 tons of equipment, 30 days food and water, artillery, light aircraft and attack helicopters. Enough for a complete invasion of almost any country in the world.

    While such an awesome projection of power would be invaluable for the surrounded United States, there were several major flaws with the design.

    The aircraft wouldn't take off from a runway at all. It would fly vertically like a Harrier jet. The LSA would use 54 recently developed turbojet engines from the Boeing 747 to provide over 82,000 pounds of thrust. The aircraft attack version would need a staggering 182 jets to provide vertical lift. Each engine would be in clusters of 20 throughout the plane.

    But you might be asking why? If this plane was designed to fly from the continental United States to take on enemies abroad and never land, why give it the ability to land vertically at all?

    Above 16,000 feet, the four massive turbojet engines, each with the diameter of a Boeing 747, would powerup with the tips going supersonic.

    To power all of these engines, the CL-1201 would have a nuclear fission reactor that would provide 1.83 gigawatts for all operations onboard.
    To prevent radioactive material from spilling out during a crash, the reactor was designed to be shut down within 20 seconds' notice and could survive a head-on impact with a mountain traveling at 600 miles an hour.

    Speaking of impact, the designers also realized that it would be susceptible to missile attacks - thus the solution was laser cannons and point defense systems to blow them out of the sky in flight.

    In the end, the CL-1201 project didn't get any further thanks to its cost, and what could have been has now faded into history.

  • How Microwaving Grapes Makes Plasma


    A bisected grape in the microwave makes plasma. But how does it work? A grape is the right size and refractive index to trap microwaves inside it. When you place two (or two halves) close together the fields interact with each other creating a maximum of electromagnetic energy where they touch. This creates heating, sparks, and plasma, which is further fed with energy directly by the microwaves.

    Huge thanks to Hamza Khattak, Prof. Pablo Bianucci and Prof. Aaron Slepkov (unavailable for the call) for chatting to me and helping me understand the physics of this cool phenomenon.

  • Nuclear Reactor Cooling Towers | Building Demolition | BlowDown | S01 E01| Free Documentary


    Nuclear Reactor Cooling Towers Demolition:
    Blowdown is an explosive four part building demolition series profiling some of the most challenging projects of Controlled Demolition Inc of Phoenix, Maryland. Each of the structures, some notable, others notorious is unique and present the team with challenges ranging from the structural, to the
    explosive and to the bureaucratic. In episode one, the team from CDI travels to Sellafield, England to take down four outdated cooling towers on the site of the world’s first commercial nuclear
    reactor. Sellafield has a long history of nuclear incidents and mishaps dating back to the infamous Windscale Fire in 1957. Sellafield now stores and treats nuclear waste and is home to 90% of Britain’s industrial radioactivity. The tension is increased by the fact that explosives have never been used on an active nuclear site in the United Kingdom before and it has taken four years to overcome the bureaucratic hurdles. The subjects of the film are four nuclear cooling towers. Each one is 88 m high and has an estimated mass of 5,200 tons. Of particular concern is the fact that the towers are only 40 meters away from a nuclear fuel handling plant. There has been a steady deterioration of the towers and there is the concern of an inadvertent collapse. Explosive demolition has been determined to be the safest and most cost effective means of removing the towers.
    Each of the towers will be loaded with three sets of explosives. The first set will be in the legs of the towers, encircling 60% of the circumference. The second set will be set in a predrilled band around the same 60% approximately 20 m up. Charges will also be loaded into 3 vertical slots about 10 meters high which should cause the concrete shells of the towers to deform, rotate and collapse within the drop zone.

    With just 10 days to load all four towers, the team struggles safely load and rig more than 4,500 charges and time the explosions to minimize the risks to the surrounding site. The team must evaluate each risk, real or imagined and account for it in the plan. Major concerns are projectiles, ground vibration and air over pressure that could compromise operations at the nuclear facility.

  • In 2010, The Navy Surfaced 3 Nuclear-Submarines To Scare China


    US MILITARY TECHNOLOGY - U.S. Navy’s submarine news, America’s intent in the aftermath of the Chinese tests was to signal U.S. strength with just the right amount and kind of potential force.

    Nuclear-powers rarely go to battle with each other, but that doesn’t mean they don’t threaten to do so.

    Indeed, military posturing is an integral part of what Forrest Morgan, an analyst for the RAND Corporation, called “crisis stability.” In other words, “building and posturing forces in ways that allow a state, if confronted, to avoid war without backing down.”

    Long-range heavy bombers are some of the best forces for crisis stability, Morgan wrote in a 2013 study for the U.S. Air Force. Bombers are powerful, mobile and visible — perfect for signalling strength and intent.

    On the other hand, the U.S. Navy’s submarine-launched cruise-missiles are less effective — even counterproductive — for crisis stability because they’re invisible most of the time.

  • First Nuclear Submarine: USS Nautilus & Its Secret Mission to the North Pole | Documentary | 1959


    ● Please SUPPORT my work on Patreon:
    ● Visit my 2ND CHANNEL:

    ✚ Watch my Military Training Films PLAYLIST:

    This short film – originally titled as USS Nautilus: Operation Sunshine – is a documentary produced by the United States Navy. It was released in 1959 and narrated by the distinguished CBS News analyst, Edward R. Murrow.

    The film documents the historic voyage of the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus (SSN-571), from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean via the North Pole while submerged beneath the polar ice cap in the summer of 1958. It was a successful top-secret U.S. Navy mission code-named Operation Sunshine.

    The film highlights the heroics of the crew for the good of their country. Further, it plays recordings of Commander William R. Anderson’s inspirational announcements over the submarine’s radio such as, For the world, our country, and the Navy – the North Pole and shows footage of the celebratory parades in honor of the Nautilus’s safe return to New York. The film even emphasizes the impact of civilian scientists aboard the Nautilus, a reference to the work of everyday Americans in furthering the mission of the United States on a global scale through scientific development. Operation Sunshine was not just a scientific expedition or experiment, it was a form of propaganda meant to give tangible evidence to support the idea that the United States was more advanced than the Soviet Union in Naval prowess.

    Prominent persons and important moments in the film:
    - Rear Admiral Elton Watters Grenfell welcomes the crew at 3:24
    - Commander William R. Anderson officially announces to the crew that the Nautilus has reached the North Pole from 10:56 to 12:08
    - Commander Anderson was awarded the Legion of Merit from President Eisenhower and the crew received a Presidential Unit Citation, the first awarded in peace time at 13:06
    - Rear Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, father of the nuclear submarines, leads the ticker tape parade through New York City at 13:21


    During the late 1950s, the United States and the Soviet Union were entering into a technology race. Russia was celebrating the successful launch of their Sputnik I satellite into orbit in 1957. The issue was not just that the U.S. was behind the Soviets in terms of space technology, but it was that the American public was aware of it. What Eisenhower needed was something to show America and the rest of the world that the U.S. government was ahead of the Soviets technologically. Their answer for that was to take the two areas where they were ahead of the Soviets (submarines and nuclear technology) and combine them.

    USS Nautilus (SSN-571) was the world's first operational nuclear-powered submarine built by the United States. The vessel was the first submarine to complete a submerged transit of the North Pole on 3rd August 1958.

    Named after Captain Nemo's fictional submarine in Jules Verne's classic 1870 science fiction novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Nautilus was authorized in 1951, with laying down for construction in 1952 and launched in January 1954, and commissioned the following September into the U.S. Navy.

    Because her nuclear propulsion allowed her to remain submerged far longer than the then current diesel-electric submarines previously, she broke many records in her first years of operation, and traveled to locations previously beyond the limits of submarines. In operation, she revealed a number of limitations in her design and construction. This information was used to improve subsequent submarines.

    Nautilus was decommissioned in 1980 and has been preserved as a museum ship at the Submarine Force Library and Museum in Groton, Connecticut.

  • The Island of Stability in Nuclear Physics


    This is one of the unsolved problems in physics
    Chemical elements are the fundamental building blocks of nature, and while most of them—carbon, copper, iron, neon, etc.—were born within stars, scientists like nuclear chemist Ken Moody are struggling to create new ones in the lab. According to a theory pioneered by Moody's mentor, Nobel laureate Glenn Seaborg, if researchers can somehow manage to pack just the right number of protons and neutrons into a nucleus, they will reach what Seaborg called the island of stability. Their new elements should be remarkably stable and could have extraordinary properties. Travel with NOVA scienceNOW inside the nucleus of an atom to learn how protons and neutrons interact and how even the tiniest constituents of nature can be manipulated

  • What Is It Like Maintaining Britains Biggest Warship? | Warship | Spark


    The HMS Ocean; Britain's biggest warship and the flagship of The Royal Navy, as she deploys on a sensitive seven-month journey to the Middle East.

    She's a floating village with her own hospital, shop, police force, church, bank, laundry, gym and even pubs. However, this village is an amphibious assault weapon - designed to sail across the world and, when necessary, bring violence to the enemy. Its population of military personnel is, surprisingly, mostly not gung-ho, but a funny and often thoughtful set of people living in and operating a highly complex war-making machine. And they love their ship.

  • Life on nuclear submarine USS Mississippi, partly built at Quonset


    6.1.12: We take a three-day-and-night ride on the Navy's newest-fast attack nuclear submarine, the USS Mississippi (SSN 782), as she heads out from Cape Canaveral, Fla., to Pascagoula, Miss. The ninth ship in the Virginia class has capabilities that are ready to serve the nation's defense with a stealth hand. The ship was partially built at Quonset, RI. A commissioning ceremony was held on June 2 in Pascagoula.

  • Russias Nightmare Under the Sea, Virginia Class Multipurpose Nuclear Submarine


    The Virginia class submarines incorporate newly designed anechoic coating, isolated deck structures and new design of propulsor to achieve low acoustic signature. It is claimed that noise level of the Virginia is equal to that of the Seawolf class.

  • This is why US Navy Registers 9 New Nuclear Submarines


    The U.S. Navy has just signed the largest warship building deal ever. The service will pay more than 20 billion dollars for nine new Virginia-class attack submarines. The submarines will replace Cold War-era Los Angeles-class boats in America’s submarine fleet, adding new technology and greater firepower. Many of the new submarines will include a long-awaited capability to launch swarms of cruise missiles.

    The deal, announced on December 2, awards $22 billion to a shipbuilding team consisting of General Dynamics Electric Boat and Huntington Ingalls Industries. The submarines, The Diplomat reports, will begin construction this year, with deliveries taking place from 2025 to 2029. One of the submarines will be of the Virginia classes’ Block IV configuration, with the remaining eight of the new Block V configuration.

    When presented with the the opportunity to play guitar in a nuclear cooling tower you say YES. A few hours from where I live there is a nearly completed, but eventually abandoned, nuclear power plant. Today it's business park, but all of the structures are still standing and it's possible to visit and make use of these...otherworldly spaces. It was a crazy fun experiment.

    Cold Waters on Steam:

    Inspired by the 1988 classic “Red Storm Rising”, command a nuclear submarine in a desperate attempt to prevent “mutually assured destruction” when the Cold War gets hot and WWIII begins.

    You will be tasked with intercepting convoys, amphibious landings, insertion missions and battling it out with enemy warships, submarines and aircraft. Thankfully, an arsenal of wire-guided torpedoes, anti-ship and cruise missiles and the occasional SEAL team are on board to keep the Iron Curtain at bay.

  • Nuclear submarine officer to conscientious objector: Mike Izbicki at TEDxUCR


    Michael Izbicki graduated from the US Naval Academy in 2008 and was selected to be a nuclear submarine officer. He trained to operate the S5W nuclear reactor as the engineering officer of the watch. However, a spiritual transformation, fueled by Christianity's teachings to love your enemy, lead Mike to the realization that he couldn't participate in war. After two applications for discharge and a petition in federal court, the Navy discharged Mike as a conscientious objector in 2011. These discharges are extremely rare, and the case made national news in the NYTimes. Currently, Mike is a Ph.D. student at UCR studying artificial intelligence. His research endeavors to simplify learning algorithms so they can be easily used by amateur programmers. Mike can be found homebrewing beer in his spare time. Inspired by the brewing tradition of Trappist monks, Mike developed the Food not Bombs Belgian dubble recipe, which won 2nd place out of 550 in LA's Mayfaire 2012 homebrew competition. Mike likes to write about religion, programming and homebrew beer on his blog (

  • The End of Overkill? Reassessing U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy


    Follow the link below to watch the full event:

    Featuring Benjamin Friedman, Research Fellow in Defense and Homeland Security Policy, Cato Institute; Elbridge Colby, Center for Naval Analyses; Hans M. Kristensen, Director of the Nuclear Information Project, Federation of American Scientists; and Matt Fay, PhD Program, Temple University History Department; moderated by Christopher Preble, Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute.

    President Obama recently voiced his ambition to reduce the U.S. nuclear arsenal to as few as 1,000 deployed warheads. Yet while the United States has cut the arsenal's size greatly since the Cold War's end, its missions and composition have barely changed. Around 1,600 deployed nuclear weapons remain tied to a triad of systems — bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles, and submarine-launched ballistic missiles — that are designed for preemptive strikes against enemy arsenals. Current plans call for modernizing all three systems, which could cost taxpayers over $100 billion. A new Cato White Paper — The End of Overkill? Reassessing U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy — argues for getting rid of the triad by basing U.S. nuclear weapons exclusively on submarines. It explains how the triad came from bureaucratic compromises, not strategic necessity; punctures the myths that sustained it; and shows how its burden on taxpayers is increasingly unjustified.

    Russian outlet Kommersant reported that the military prosecutor’s office recovered the money from an enterprise that repaired four nuclear submarines of the Russian Northern Fleet, without the necessary special licenses.
    The head of the company received a sentence for illegal entrepreneurship in the field of state defense orders.
    It is noteworthy that the customer- which in this case is the Russian Ministry of Defense had no complaints about the quality of work.

    This an interesting development as nuclear powered submarines are sensitive assets and a fault in them could result in a catastrophe in the future.

    In this video Defense Updates analyzes potential hazardous repair of Russian nuclear submarines

    Imagine this. It's a bright warm sunny afternoon and you're spending your day outside. There's not a cloud in the sky, and you can hear the birds chirping peacefully. But within seconds that all can change. If a nuclear blast occurs, you'd be gone in a flash. You wouldn't have time to process what's about to happen, within impact you'd be wiped out completely. But what if a nuclear blast happened in 7 days? Would that be enough time to prepare? Would we be able to survive? These are some of the questions I will be answering in today's video.
