Submarines, the closest place to space that's not in space.

Absolutely awesome episode. I used to use an oxy propane torch that generated its oxygen just like the "candles" on the sub. Really enjoyed learning about the scrubber system

I'm guessing electrolysis.
Edit: I would've also killed everyone on the sub.

Destin:asks question
Also Destin: answers own question correctly
Sailor: yes
Destin: thanks man it was a pleasure talking to you. You taught me so much!

It's incredible to me how much everyone on the sub knows what they're talking about. Each and every person you talk to is such an expert in their field! So cool and makes you have so much respect for how hard they must have worked to get to where they are.

"We are now far in to our deep dive on submarines"
Also Destin:
I've been waiting ten years to say that 😄

Similar to the tool we used to find R-134a or R-12 leaks on cars.

Destin: “This is my dog, I just wanted you to see her cause she’s cute...”. oh and this is my wife, she’s aight...I guess

Imagine being the person who decided oxygen candles were a thing and was trying to explain it - "so yeah right, what we do is set off this self-sustaining oxidising metal fire, right... so long as it doesn't melt its way through the hull everything is OK".

“Reverse osmosis is complicated and I don’t want to go into the great depths of that right now, but there is a lot of stuff on screen right now and that’s kind of what happens. Let’s move on.” Dude...considering that reverse osmosis is complicated enough to be an entire video, that sentence rocked and made me laugh. Paused it right after that statement to like and comment. Keep up the great work!

Similar to the tool we used to find R-134a or R-12 leaks on cars. (works exactly the same)

"Oh wow interesting, how long do the candles burn?"

Everyone on the ship slowly suffocating: 😐

“Lean Amine is like a flat coke” Destin is showing his Southern dialect
