Submarine Questions of the Week - 4 JUNE 2015


Beware of sources who correct their errors without notice, which is only slightly more responsible than never acknowledging errors.  Redundancy of error can be a publishing nightmare.  No source, no matter how reliable, is immune from error.

In answers to our 2008 Submarine Questions of the Week, we relied on a reputable navy source without double checking. We will not name the original source, and we take our responsibility for misleading anyone.  

Our error:  "The king from a country without a navy embarked in a nuclear submarine."


1.  How could we have known, contrary to the caption in the photo (above),  that USS Sargo (SSN-583) did not embark a king on a cruise around Oahu as planned and publicized?

2.  Our second question had asked, "What was the name of this king with no navy?
Our answer was:  King Mahendra of Nepal.  Was that answer correct?

3.  Identify a related source of misleading information about the subject king.

ANSWERS Tommorow: 5 JUNE 15

Submarines are always silent and strange.
