China Displays Nuclear Submarine To Tourists (Photos) by Explorers(m): 10:06pm On Apr 27
A museum in China has put the country's first ever nuclear-powered submarine on display in celebration of the 68th anniversary of the People's Liberation Army Navy.

There are only four other countries that have retained a nuclear powered submarine after it has been decommissioned.

As of April 25, tourists have been able to explore the submarine and get first hand experience on what it's like onboard.

The submarine is the first of its kind to go on display at the Naval Museum in Qingdao on the coast of east China's Shandong province.

Visitors were able to access the attraction from April 25.

The type 091 nuclear submarine was produced using technology from the 1950s and 1960s and has short range weapons.

The submarine would usually be equipped with six torpedo tubes

This machine can go miles down below the ocean for days or weeks without coming to the surface.

When there's an accident, issue or fault onbard, it sinks deep to the dark bottom of the ocean.

Rescue is difficult or even impossible most times.

12th August 2000, Russian K-141 Kursk was an Oscar-II class nuclear-powered cruise-missile submarine of the Russian Navy which was lost with all hands when it sank in the Barents sea.

At 11:28 local time (07:28 UTC), there was an explosion equivalent to 3-7 tons of TNT from one of the Torpedoes on board.

The explosion blew a large hole in the hull and collapsed the first three compartments of the sub, sending her down to the bottom of the ocean.

There were 118 personnel on board, no survivor.

21st August, 2000,(9days later), Norwegian and Russian divers found 24 bodies in the 9th compartment, the turbine room at the stern of the submarine.

The Captain-lieutenant Dmitri Kolesnikov has written a note after the explosion listing the names of 23 sailors who were alive in the compartment after the submarine sank.

The 23 sailors were alive for days after the explosion at the bottom of the sea, in the dark, with little oxygen hoping and waiting for rescue which will never come.

The Submarine was recovered from the ocean one year later.





Navy is scary.
