Pretty Cool.

While the report is in Russian, it is still worth watching. The first Soviet nuclear submarine, K-3 Leninskiy Komsomol, is now at display in Kronstadt. Video has English subtitles if you watch it on YouTube.

It is a special boat for many of us--the alumni of our naval academy, her CO, then Captain 2nd Rank Zhiltsov took her to the North Pole. Second sub, after USS Nautilus, to do so. He became the Hero of the Soviet Union and retired in the rank of the rear-admiral. Pretty cool. I do, however, have another favorite naval museum channel--this one is Battleship New Jersey. Love what they do in terms of education. So, enjoy.
