The laws of Thermodynamics suggest such an idea is nonsensical.
Can you please give me an example – a process that is supposed to happen in the nuclear submarine and an explaination why the laws of thermodynamics prevent it from happening?

Could you make it longer?

Out of curiousity, what would happen with the forum software if you set it to be like 7404 days? Would the y2k38 problem kick in?
If so, could you make it like 7400 days (if done within the next 2)?

As Papa Legba said before he was banned for some reason, is, as I have been saying, those subs are not nuclear in my opinion and are powered by other means, one being hydrogen.
The Walter turbine was something I was looking at and it makes sense to be part of the set up for the supposed nuclear subs and what not.

Obviously the deniers will jump straight in as they always do to deny stuff simply because they feed off the nuclear frenzy.
People go on about subs being submerged for weeks on end but I don't believe a word of it, regardless of what's been told.

I'd be highly surprised if they were submerged for more than a few days at a time, or not even that without surfacing, unless they only submerged to periscope type depth where they can use breather pipes in conjunction with that.

Humans can be crazy and scientists can take risks to a certain extent, but on the whole, in terms of mass of intelligence of people, there's no way in hell anyone would put supposed super dangerous nuclear energy inside something like a submarine, let alone ships and land power plants.


Whatever the stuff is may be dangerous in toxic ways and explosive ways but not in terms of what we are told about.

And how did he tell you this? Just a chat among your personalities?

Yes, you have been continually saying that but you are yet to back it up.

The Walter turbine was something I was looking at and it makes sense to be part of the set up for the supposed nuclear subs and what not.
Again, no it doesn't.
You still have the problem of storing so much fuel it isn't funny.

But does that mean you now admit hydrogen wouldn't work?

Obviously the deniers will jump straight in as they always do to deny stuff simply because they feed off the nuclear frenzy.
You mean to point out your baseless claims are baseless and crap?

People go on about subs being submerged for weeks on end but I don't believe a word of it, regardless of what's been told.
And there we go with the deniers jumping straight in to deny stuff simply because it doesn't fit with their delusional world view.

“For some reason”, LOL!  His posts are the very definition of “low content in the upper fora”.  He seemed unwilling to do anything but ad hominem rubbish.  Go back and read them, you probably won’t find more than 10% of his posts to be free of personal, off-topic trash talk.  He behaves an awful lot like Intikam did, and that guy eventually earned himself a lifetime ban.

You still think that whatever is there instead of nuclear, it’s being hidden from the crew, right?  How do you propose to hide a Walter Turbine setup from the crew?

Try joining a Navy... I was stationed on the USS Nassau (LHA-4)... It is the largest flat deck ship to be non-nuclear. It's been decommissioned since...  We would do an "unrep" (underway replenishment) about every week if we were out to sea that long... This entails filling up the fuel tanks, bringing over food/mail/supplies...

But, obviously it would be pointless to try and "Convince" you or educate you as you have made up your mind that it is "Impossible"

But, if you are interested... Look up the difference between Russian nuke subs and American Nuke subs.... The Russian's are much much less careful with their protection of sailors from radiation... or the vessel from the reactor...

I would say, make up your own mind, but your mind is obviously set... Instead of asking a sailor that's been on a sub (who is a member of this very site) you'd rather make your own assumptions based off of shit you've read on the internet from people that don't know.... shit....

It benefits you in no way to be so absolutely sure of yourself... But hey, we are on a Flat Earth site, right?

So you have a crew that is maintaining a fake reactor.  Then you have another crew that is maintaining the real power source.  You have this for every reactor everywhere.  This seems incredibly inefficient.
And again a conspiracy involving thousands is unrealistic

Nope. You have a crew who believe they're operating a nuclear sub. That's it. It's just buttons and testing.
If anything goes wrong it's back to the yard where everyone is dispersed so the so called nuclear experts can repair the fault.

If something 'goes wrong' on a sub, I have doubts it's as simple as 'bring back to shore to fix'. Seems you would *have* to have people on board able to fix/repair/perform maintenance upon such an engine. You don't go out to spend weeks at sea, far away from land, and don't have people on board able to fix every possible problem they can. But again, you've apparently made up your mind based on 'You can't prove unequivocally it IS'. I mean, you're right we can't over the internet. But that doesn't mean you couldn't get yourself into the position to prove it on your own. Would take time, but there are avenues available to do so.

It's supposed to be a reactor boiling water and sending steam to a turbine.
So where's the engine?

Did you even read about the Thrasher?

Due to pressure loss, the reactor would "scram" or turn off... then they would re-start it... Engineering design flaws caused water condensation to freeze so they were unable to blow the ballast...

The sub would speed forward, climb a few feet, then the reactor would stop and it would sink a few feet more, then they would climb a few feet, loose the engines, and sink a few feet more....  and then an instant crush of death... Split second... done... Their only suffering was knowing it was going to happen.

I served on the surface fleet... This is how I know about satellites out at sea or what the sky looks like south of the equator... but when shit fucks up, you just kind of sit there and wait...

When you are on a Sub... and a fire breaks out? That is eating your air... When you are on a sub and you spring a leak.... The lighter side of submarine life though, is I read an article about a crew farting too much causing toxic gas alarms to go off...

One of the jobs of a Nuke is going to Nuke school.... if you are smart enough to get into Nuke school, but not smart enough to pass nuke school.... you get to spend the rest of your naval carrier chipping paint...

Not really.

Yeah, restart it because supposed nuclear power just switches on and off, doesn't it?

Nahhhh, it's too silly.
The sub would be full of air so no sink and crush unless they opened valves to allow an inrush, which they certainly would not do in any event where a pump failure was in progress.

If something 'goes wrong' on a sub, I have doubts it's as simple as 'bring back to shore to fix'. Seems you would *have* to have people on board able to fix/repair/perform maintenance upon such an engine.
What engine?
It's supposed to be a reactor boiling water and sending steam to a turbine.

You just described it. Are you confused by the fact that a steam turbine is an engine?

Quote
So where's the engine?

In the engine room.
So the steam turbine is the engine.

In a nuclear ship, yes, it's the main engine.

Quote
I was just making sure that's what was implied because now we can clearly see that working on a so called engine is nothing other than working on a STEAM turbine.

OK. And?

Quote
We all know that steam turbines don't need to be powered by so called nuclear power, don't we?

Not all steam turbines are powered by nuclear reactors. Some are powered by nuclear reactors. So?

Quote
Stick sailor engineer Jack on it and he's working on a?........ steam turbine that he thinks is the end product of nuclear.

Maybe more clearly stated "... steam turbine that he thinks has a nuclear reactor producing the steam." Yeah. And he'd be right!
He could very well be wrong as well.

Ignorant!

Not #WOKE, simply ignorant.

If you think nuclear power is fake, you are simply ignorant.

You, sceptimatic, are simple, and ignorant.
