    I don't know why... but this was one of my favorite videos from the Deep Dive Series. It's so... personal and real. I had no idea that food is literally THE limiting factor on a submarine's ability to dive. Also, I had no idea meals were such a big deal for morale (Ice Cream on Waffles totally works by the way).
    I have an email list here if you'd like to get an email when I upload a video:

    In the mid '80s I was on a boat some place in the Pacific. And there was Pizza Night. (Note: "Night" is a relative term herein used)
    What is special about Pizza Night is that pizza, in general, is easy to make as long as someone made the dough and the base sauce in advance. What is really important about Pizza Night is that some crew members will volunteer their time to relieve the galley crew for a few hours of pure down time.
    Even though I often heard the term NAVY = Never Again Volunteer Yourself, I did as a 1st class nuke PO.
    I came armed with pervious knowledge as a pie tosser in a pizza shop pre-Navy and 4 tins of anchovies (one should always plan in advance for long deployments). Although the overhead was barely inches above my head I was able to hand toss dough to the delight of some fellow crewmembers. But the real surprise for them was when I made some pies with only marinara sauce and anchovies and a very little bit of cheese (on one side only). The odor of cooking anchovy pizza ala Napolitana spread as even biological gas will on a sub and suddenly there were many people hanging around the crew's mess. There were even officers who had their own mess and were not generally encouraged to mix with us enlisted types during chow times.
    But it was Pizza Night and they got their slices too.
    Pizza Night was a huge 'Thank You' to the galley crew and a bit of having fun with the crew, even O-gangers. And maybe a bit of showing off for those who can.
    Now I will shut up and watch your video.

    So . . . why can't they grow food on a nuclear sub? Is it just not space efficient enough to create a ship that never needs to surface, or could it actually be done with compact hydroponics and small plants like strawberries?

    This is amazing. Really. They've got basically their own community down there. Every single thing has been thought of. Planning how much of each resource they need, what happens when they get resources from a different location than what they're used to, and how much resources they use over time. I know I might just be lying to myself, but THIS video makes living on a submarine look fun. My fave part was when they demonstrated, how, even in this boat, with narrow passages, that people have to try to avoid colliding with and getting in other people's way, you get to have absolute right-of-way, just by being the one carrying a hot pizza.

    A real eye opener for people interested in space travel. I'd imagine the operation of a nuclear submarine is very similar to a space capsule, or the International Space Station. I never knew how tightly packed every critical system is. Thanks Destin.
    Fyi, I'm starting to second guess my dream of migrating to the Moon and Mars in 30 years time. But then again, I guess a person can adapt to just about any situation in the name of survival.

I remember 4 meals separated by 6 hours and standing a 3 section watch, 6 hours on and 12 hours off - the only way one knew time of day was by the meal being served. To this day more than 20 years later I still can't sleep much more than 6 hours

    For under 3$ a day, they manage to create high quality pizza with toppings. And yeah, I like to cook at home, if you do things from scratch with flour it's dirt cheap and so delicious. But labor intensive. But if you can spare the time, it's worth it.
