Note: The US Navy put no restrictions on me about what I should say or how I should present what I learned on this trip. Other than making sure my footage was cleared for Operational Security, I am free to say whatever I want about this experience.
Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here: www.navy.com/
There are tons of interesting career opportunities out there that I never knew about:
The US Navy has several options such as engineer, pilot, submariner, logistics, accountant, medical doctor, and even Public Affairs specialist. I continue to be impressed by people that I meed who spent time in the Navy. I worked with various people during the course of filming this video and they were all top notch. www.navy.com/

Thank you for taking the time to watch this video. I'd also like to thank the US Navy Public Affairs Officers who helped coordinate this. After clearing the video for OPSEC, they did not limit my creativity in anyway whatsoever. I decided to make a video about the Command Structure on the submarine so we had a better foundation moving forward in the Submarine Deep Dive. This video is just the beginning! I have some incredible things to show you as a part of the deep dive. Please consider subscribing for those. I'm most grateful to people who go the extra mile and support Smarter Every Day on Patreon. It's a super big deal because it brings stability to Smarter Every Day in ways that's hard to describe. In this case, I had to buy a plane ticket to the Arctic on relatively short notice. If you'd like to become a Patron, I'd greatly appreciate it. The link is here: www.patreon.com/smartereveryday

@Sully Science This may have changed depending on the sub design, but my understanding is that the depth indicated is usually taken/measured at the keel of the sub, which is the very bottom of the boat.

When dive dive dive is for diving, so what's captain word for surfacing?

Absolute respect the men that serve in our military and especially submariners. You can tell the respect they have for what they do, for each other and for the people the are defending (me and you)! There is no room for a "me" attitude.....there just is no "room" for it. Everyone must travel as light as they can (excuse the pun) in a submarine. These are the men that defend our freedom and do it from the razor's edge!

You can see that everyone on.this submarine respect each other. They laugh and joke and seem at ease. But I bet each and everyone gets the job done, and done well. It's good to see the great integration between everyone at every level. I bet these guys hold their captain on a pedestal! And it's clear he thinks highly of his guys! All this together makes an unstoppable team in fairness

All US subs have off the shelf drones with a sat based intrrnet connectivity so they can work while sub is underwater. Would have been cool to see the sun breaking the ice as it surfaced...

It took me a minute to appreciate the writing on the shirt at 11:48. For those who haven't figured it out here it is. E/c^2 is mass, or M. Square root of -1 is i, and PV/nR is temperature, T, so it spells out MIT.
Sam Winston James
Thank you for this. I am claustrophobic, I really respect these guys
This is great, one thing i have always wondered regarding the whole, subs under ice thing is how they decide which ice to punch through, can they punch through any ice, is the boat hardened specifically to punch through the ice, does it have a spike on the conning tower to do so, how does it feel inside the sub when it punches through the ice, is it like a crazy earthquake in there. Hope some of these questions can be answered in this series.

Btw, in case peopled missed it. The formula on Lt. Bradley Howard's t-shirt 'translates' to MIT M=E/c2 *(that's Einstein's famous formula) sqrt(-1) being normally identified by 'i' (imaginary number), so that's a concept from number theory and the T comes out of the last part which is from thermodynamics, if you re-arrange the last part of the formula on her t-shirt So it's not a formula per-se, but more a riddle :)

Hi Destin!! How exactly does one go about booking a flight to a random spot on the Arctic ice floes to make rendezvous with a submarine? What are the logistics of arriving around the same time as it breaks through the ice? That in itself would be a great video.
