  • Want to travel through an ocean trench in a submarine

    Hello!

    I have watched the submarine film "Hunt on Red Oktober". In the film the submarine drives through an very narrow ocean trench, which entrance is called "Toras Twins".

    Is it possible to charter a submarine and to travel through the "Toras Twins" ocean trench in it? (If you are wealthy enough, you can even travel into space.)

    Sit in your bedroom with the lights out, drink a bottle of vodka and listen to some heavy metal; its EXACTLY the same feeling as a run through Toras Twins!

      Driving at night without the lights on does it for me.

      Visibility underwater, mid-ocean, is overrated. Fish ca-ca tends to be opaque.

          Where do I get a detailed topographic map of the "Torus Twins" ocean trench to plan the underwater excursion?

            Well, for starters: combatant type submarines don't fly through canions like fighter aircraft -- they avoid the bottom and protuberances like the plague. Second, I believe that the canyon in the movie was a fiction.

              I guess, it would not be necessary to scrape with the subamrine along the stone wall of the canyon, to make it a unique experience. :lol:

              Anyway, going near the wall of the canyon may cause loose stones falling down on the submarine, or not?

              There is no "Toras Twins Canyon" ?

                Thor's Twins - not real. It is a movie.

                If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  Thanks for the Thor's Twins info.

                  But there exist other narrow near vertical underwater canyons in the atlantic, which would be interesting to travel through, right?

                    1. Go to the Grand Canyon
                    2. Rent helicopter.
                    3. Tell the pilot to fly you at night through the canyon.

                      Consuli,
                      Movies do have a way of creating a feeling of excitement. Anything at depth is dark. Military submarines do not have windows (there are few exceptions like research subs and just to let you know windows in the sail are not used when the sub is underwater).
                      There are some commercial tourist submarines, but the depth they go to is very limited.
                      Are there other canyons? Probably.
                      Build an R/C submarine, add a camera, and run it in a local pond and you can create your own scenes and excitement.
                      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                        I fully agree, that most subs do not have windows. However, Google knows more 100, that have windows.

                        Instead of building an R/C submarine myself, it would be much more easier to go as diver with a seabob through an underwater canyon (maybe, with an additional underwater action cam).

                        I just want to go through an underwater canyon, it is not necessary it is deep-sea canyon (I am not a nuclear sub to hide from sonar buoys. ;-) ).
