How They Built The World’s Longest Underwater Pipeline 1166km Video “Giant Serpent”

By two thousand and eight, Norway will be connected to the United Kingdom via a 1200 km super pipeline—the longest sub-sea pipeline in the world. But this connection is only a part of an enormous plan to tap into Norway’s second largest gas deposit, capable of providing 20% of the UK’s gas needs for decades to come. Located 3 km below the ocean’s surface, and 120 km offshore, the deposit is beyond the reach of humans and all of the construction has to be completed by robots working against strong underwater currents, sub-zero temperatures and extreme wind and wave conditions. When tapped, the gas will be transported to one of the largest automated gas processing plants to prepare it for shipment to the U.K. Each phase will put ingenuity and engineering to the ultimate test.

The dirtiest river in the world: Indonesia’s Citarum Video Doc.

The Citarum river in West Java is considered the dirtiest river in the world. Textile factories discharge tons of untreated toxic waste into the river every day. Local residents also treat the river as a dumping ground, using the waters to dispose of excrement and household waste. In spite of how dirty the river is, at least 30 million people across West Java rely on the Citarum to irrigate the farmland that feeds them. Now, as part of the “Citarum Harum” project, the Indonesian government is trying to clean the river up. This documentary follows the Indonesian military as it implements a multi-million dollar effort aimed at returning the 270-kilometer stretch of river to a more pristine state.

USS Thresher Was Doomed From the Start—Here’s Every Event That Led Up to Its Sinking

This is the story of a routine hull test gone wrong.

  • The USS Thresher was supposed to be the first of a new generation of nuclear-powered attack submarines.
  • In April 1963, during hull testing, ships on the surface lost contact with Thresher, and the U.S. Navy lost the boat and all hands onboard.
  • Naval experts say that no single flaw sank the ship, but rather many smaller flaws came together to seal the submarine’s disastrous fate.

Nearly six decades ago, the U.S. Navy experienced one of its worst accidents of the postwar era. The nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine USS Thresher sank to the bottom of the Atlantic in the spring of 1963, along with the 129 souls onboard. Although charges of a coverup were leveled at Navy officials, a release of previously secret documents in 2020 and 2021 dispelled those claims and reinforced a popular belief among naval experts: that a number of factors came together to sink the ship, ranging from inadequate training to poorly designed equipment.

The two decades after World War II were a time of major upheaval for the Navy’s submarine fleet. Desperate to get submarines into the water to challenge the Soviet Union, the service also began incorporating new technologies at a breakneck speed.
