Submarine - Abandoning The Vessel

Abandoning The Vessel

In an emergency, submarines can transmit a signal which can be picked up by other ships. Escape suits can be used by the crew to abandon the submarine. The crew can prevent their lungs from bursting due to the change in pressure by exhaling during the ascent. An alternative means of escape is via a submarine rescue vehicle which can dock onto the disabled submarine.

Famous quotes containing the words abandoning the, vessel and/or abandoning:

    After so many historical illustrations of the evil effects of abandoning the policy of protection for that of a revenue tariff, we are again confronted by the suggestion that the principle of protection shall be eliminated from our tariff legislation. Have we not had enough of such experiments?
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)

    In clear weather the laziest may look across the Bay as far as Plymouth at a glance, or over the Atlantic as far as human vision reaches, merely raising his eyelids; or if he is too lazy to look after all, he can hardly help hearing the ceaseless dash and roar of the breakers. The restless ocean may at any moment cast up a whale or a wrecked vessel at your feet. All the reporters in the world, the most rapid stenographers, could not report the news it brings.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A Tory..., since the revolution, may be defined in a few words, to be a lover of monarchy, though without abandoning liberty; and a partizan of the family of Stuart. As a Whig may be defined to be a lover of liberty though without renouncing monarchy; and a friend to the settlement in the protestant line.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
