The submarine captain, watching through the periscope, was mesmerized for hours.


A U.S. Navy Trident missile goes awry shortly after a test launch from a submarine off the coast of Cape Canaveral several years ago. The missile exploded shortly after this photo was taken. There was no injury to the submarine or its crew, although family members of the submarine crew who had been invited to watch the launch from a nearby ship (from which this photo was taken) were understandably quite upset. The submarine captain, watching the test through the sub's periscope, was reported to have been mesmerized for several hours.
