50 years of Bombers

On this day…


1959 – America launched the USS George Washington - the first submarine to be armed with ballistic missiles.

Anyone good at maths want to work out how far you'd get travelling at 4 knots for 50 years :D

Even if I was good at the maths, there are more exiting things to do with ones life, like watching grass grow, one of the reasons I avoided SM10.

I was bored and it beats calculating the amount of heavy water being "lost" here at Chalk River assuming a leak rate of 4kg/hour and the subsequent cost of reprocessing said heavy water for reuse. Anyone know any good aluminim welders who can work in confined spaces and high rad fields?

If you are at Chalk River, have they worked out what CRUD is yet?

As soon as they work out what it is, it ceases to be unidentifed and will therefore become CRID :)
