    I’m pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    A friend drives 1 of 2 submarine rescue vessels based at garden(?) island in rockingham WA. He told me when we caught up last year there were the only 2 of that type of vessel in the southern hemisphere .

    I hear on the news an oil slick has been sighted so it seems something has gone wrong. I can only wish them the best, but like many I fear the worse.. hopefully if they have entered davy jones locker, it was fast and painless.

    News here says that the commander of the submarines was on board

    Hope that will not have caused a breakdown in decisions as the top person was not there to authorise deployment of rescue plan earlier

    "Indonesian navy detects ‘strong magnetic force’ in search for submarine" is about an hour old news.

    Sadly it is likely to be too late for the Sailors.

    Actually was from about midday yesterday but is really all too late. They could do a very risky escape from that depth and the fact they haven't does not bode well.

    They were carrying out torpedo trials. Suddenly lost contact. I really hope it's not what I think it is. By all reports they are now out of breathable air.

    It is almost certainly a recovery mission now.


    "It is very rare that there are people left alive after an initial leak, explosion, or mechanical fire," Dr Hellyer said.

    "When things go bad, they tend to go catastrophically bad."

    Authentic evidence': Grim discovery in search for missing submarine


    'Authentic evidence': Grim find in search for missing submarine (yahoo.com)

    Australian Associated PressSat, 24 April 2021, 4:29 pm·1-min read



    Indonesia's navy says items have been found from a missing submarine, indicating the vessel with 53 crew members has sunk.

    Navy Chief Yudo Margono said on Saturday rescuers found several items including parts of a torpedo straightener, a grease bottle believed to be used to oil the periscope and prayer rugs from the submarine.

    "With the authentic evidence we found believed to be from the submarine, we have now moved from the sub miss phase to sub sunk," Admiral Margono said.

    Good point bob, it happened with a Russian Sub. ie. A torpedo explosion in the tube I think it was & from the image blew her Bow section off. No chance then. Kursk submarine disaster - Wikipedia Why would they have been playing with Torps, don't they know they are dangerous? I guess it isn't the Torpedo but what's inside it, in the Kursk's case. It is probably all academic now anyway, unfortunately.
