  • I don't know why... but this was one of my favorite videos from the Deep Dive Series. It's so... personal and real. I had no idea that food is literally THE limiting factor on a submarine's ability to dive. Also, I had no idea meals were such a big deal for morale (Ice Cream on Waffles totally works by the way). I have an email list here if you'd like to get an email when I upload a video: Thank you to those who have recently chosen to support Smarter Every Day on Patreon ( ) . You're awesome, and I hope you have received your baseball! I've been seeing a lot of posts on twitter of people showing me photos of their baseball and it's awesome!! If you have not received your yet, please check for status updates! I'm grateful for your support and hope you really enjoy this one. The next video is both amazing certifiably insane, so please look forward to that! Regards, Destin

I remember 4 meals separated by 6 hours and standing a 3 section watch, 6 hours on and 12 hours off - the only way one knew time of day was by the meal being served. To this day more than 20 years later I still can't sleep much more than 6 hours

  • I do wonder about the radiation warning signs that pop up here and there. I assume it's proximity to the reactor compartment and feed lines, etc. I guess all the mass around the reactor is contributing to shielding from the shine, and why waste space on a cramped vessel? Build right up to the limit of tolerance where people go, and a bit past it where people can't.

  • I like how the mess crew goes out of their way to make sure the rest of the crew gets some specialty treats, like the BBQ sauce they enjoy. While some kind of nutritional gruel might be cheap and easy to store and require no chef skills, it would also be an extremely good way to tank crew morale. You just can't beat the effects of a good home cooked meal, even when you're deep under the arctic ocean.

  • A submarines deployment time is measured by the contents of it's food pantry. I can't believe these guys let you poke a camera in their pantry. Some enemy intelligence could predict with some accuracy how long a given submarine is on patrol and even count the number of submarines of that nation out on deployment.

  • I always wondered why you can't grow some food on submarines? I mean sure you probably can't grow large amounts (I mean where would you find the space) but what about even just fresh edible herbs? A lot of herbs grow really quickly, take little space and don't need much besides a little water and a little light. There are many lightweight and mess free plant growth materials too besides the option of growing herbs just in water, the lamps to provide light can also be small compact and lightweight and power shouldn't be a problem with a nuclear reactor, plants will naturally help with eating some carbon dioxide and provide a little more additional oxygen which would be a helpful addition, and you can probably find crooks and crannies all over the sub to attach small planters. Plus I would think seeing a pop of green might be a good way to help reduce stress levels on the crew's off work times. Is it down to space constraints or is there a different reason for absence of plants?

    • @Simon WoodburyForget Thank you. That is a very clear answer. Many things I hadn't thought of until you pointed them out.

    • Dried herbs take zero electricity, exponentially less space (1/100), and require zero maintenance. I'm not too sure why you're wondering why they're just storing the dried products... Majority of food takes an order of magnitude more space and energy to grow than it does to store... and then you would still need to store them. For efficiently growing and harvesting products, you need to do it all at once, plants that are "growing" aren't plants you can actually eat. I mean not to forget the literal piles of water you'd need to filter in order to water the plants, and the parasites that these plants may endup carrying, and the moisture they'd endup releasing into the air. The oxygen output of plants is... rediculously small, incase you didn't realize. A sub doesn't have excess space, they're designed like airplanes, to be as small as possible, and carrying something that would waste a lot of space is not a good idea. Yes the purpose of indoors plants is to improve how people feel in the environment; keep in mind that maintening the plants would still be a full time job, and a lot of work as a lot of plants do not like growing in specific types of conditions. You need things like humidity and temperature control, aswell as the right type of soil, and the right amount of water. You also need to deal with potentially carrying fungi and insects which live on and around the plants. Don't forget about how people may actually be allergic to plants, for example lots of people have pollen allergies. Plants are living things, and so they bring all the issues that any living thing would bring to an isolated environment.
