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:
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.
Here's a video about loading and firing a harpoon missile from the USS Olympia (I filmed the impact):

When I boarded the USS Toledo I did not know I was going to be given the opportunity to crawl down a torpedo tube. Honestly I was thinking I would have a conversation with someone about the periscope or something but it did not occur to me that when you are under the ice you cannot use the periscope. When they asked me if I wanted to see a torpedo tube I didn’t realized I had no clue how they worked. Most people overlook this seemingly simple system, but when you take a moment and analyze it you will realize it is quite complicated. I hope this is the level of detail you were hoping for in the submarine series, because this is what gets me excited. I haven’t decided which video is next but I’ll tell you this, I did not know one of the methods they use on board to make oxygen. Anyways, thank you for watching the series and please consider subscribing if you feel like this is worthy of your time. I don’t know if you’re the type of person that likes to share videos with other people, but I would appreciate it if you could pass the submarine series on to a friend or two. As always, I would like to express my gratitude to people who support Smarter every day on Patreon at . I am thankful for the support, and the next video has a special surprise for you, the Patrons.

I still have one question, the torpedo is not level with the tube in the sub, do the like rotate it to that position or what? It didn't look to be enough space to just lift it.

Hello! I am a brand new subscriber. I have ALWAYS wanted to see inside a submarine and understand it. But I couldn't, properly as I have disabilities which prevented me from doing so. I am loving how you can explain things in a non patronising manner, which is easy to understand even to a new viewer. This type of stuff you post is helping keep me sane on the bad days, where my condition keeps me bed bound. And I am having so much fun watching it, so thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart. I found you through Mark Roben (sp?), the NASA fellow who you are friends with: I'm starting with his glitter bomb porch pirate stealing payback packages! Please keep it up. I have a lot of content to catch up on it seems.

This should be added to hitman. Push somebody into the torpedo tube, close the hatch and then flood it and maybe fire it?

I thought nuclear subs can make their own air. So yes the air from the tube can be reused but not because they have not enough air. That's also why a nuclear sub can stay under water for a loooong time.

Give appreciation to the welder that did the welds that can be seen at 16:26 what is shocking is that, there aren't as many passes as you'd imagine the would be. Single bevel, 4 visible. That about 20 beads. Take not instagram welders. These critical welds that pass an inspection in a nuclear sub, aren't pretty dime stacks.

When a submarine surfaces how does it replenish air? A big fan blowing in the entry hatch? Or a special system to flush the submarine with fresh air? Hmm.

Hi. Hope you're doing well. I saw this video & decided to check it out just for something to watch. Talk about glad I did. This video answered questions I had as a kid which I'd forgotten about. I love the way you go into depth (pardon the pun) on how the torpedo tube works. I always thought it was a motor on the torpedo that basically launched it. Can't wait to watch your other videos now I'm a new confirmed subscriber 😀
