Faith in Technology

We’ll never evolve enough to become infallible. I hope we can one day evolve enough to achieve nuclear disarmament. Mistakes happen…

A British nuclear-powered submarine described as the “world’s most advanced” that ran aground off the coast of Scotland has been towed free, Sky News reported.
The HMS Astute — the Royal Navy’s newest and largest attack submarine — was floated free at high tide Friday with the help of three support vesels, according to Sky News.
The sub ran into trouble Friday morning in shallow waters near a road bridge linking the Isle of Skye to the mainland when the vesel’s rudder apparently became stuck on a shingle bank, according to British media reports.
..In a statement, the defense ministry said the accident was not a nuclear incident and that no injuries had been reported.
