Two sailors die in explosion on nuclear sub under Arctic ice

STEWART PATERSON March 21 2007

An investigation was under way last night after two British submariners died after an explosion on board a nuclear-powered submarine under the Arctic ice cap.

HMS Tireless was forced to smash through the ice to surface after the blast yesterday morning while the vessel was on exercise.

A chlorate candle: "used to produce oxygen, exploded during a training exercise." <---being cited as the culprit.

http://news.scotsman.com/uk.cfm?id=442982007
.



Conventional weapons, nuclear sub. Two dead, one injured...(currently in hospital, in Anchorage, Alas.)--Apparently, these oxygen generating devices are shot with a .22, in the case of this sub. In the case of the ValuJet Flight 592, leaving Miami to Atlanta "All 110 on board ValuJet Flight 592 died."

"On 23 February, 1997, during the exchange of an air filter on the Mir space station, a chlorate candle spewed a torch-like jet of a molten metal and sparks across one of the space station modules, burning for 14 minutes and blocking the escape route to one of the Soyuz spacecraft. There were no injuries."

On a semi-related note: is Rugby the game, related to Rugby, the English town?

Can't see the relation but I'll say anyway
Yes it is the game Rugby was founded in Rugby (very near where I live ) by William Webb Ellis at Rugby School. A great game to play I've played rugby in rugby a few times

Because in researching the submarine, I saw that it had "official" ties to the town of Rugby.
