Submarine Races — not just for date night anymore!

In hilarious, Science, technology on January 9, 2013 at 7:02 am

My brother’s household is engaged in building a human powered sub to enter in this year’s International Submarine Races. We spent a fair amount of time over the holidays talking about how to make frames, the problem of turbulence on the trailing surface of the sub, and the benefits and drawbacks of propellor-based systems. The pilot and motive force for the sub will my SCUBA-certified nephew.

Sub racing! Apparently it is not just for date night — it’s a family affair!
