PLANTS do both scrubing CO2 and making Oxygen. How many plants would it take to do the same job as these alternatives? How about a comparison video? I'm sure many other fans like me would like to know.

I thought he was going to say the headphones button Is so cool because they pause the music and turn up the outside noise to hear people better, not just to pause music like my $40cdn Poms that are a knockoff of Airbuds that are a knockoff of airpods lol but good enough.

I am struck by how young they all are. It's such a shame that we as a species have to put so much brain power and life potential into fighting each other/protecting ourselves from ourselves. Much respect to all these guys. Fantastic series, Destin, you've outdone yourself.

Your model of a 688i has a major flaw. there are no ducts around the prop in any LA class boat. The stabilizers between the rudder and stern plane is also way off it is right between them not 20 or 30 feet ahead

MEA Monoethanolamine is commonly used in combustion plants to reduce their CO2 output Both making O2 and removing CO2 have a primary system that requires power but is infinitely recyclable and a backup system that uses no power but is one time only

Thank you for posting this video. It has been 14 years since I left my boat, and this really put me right back. This was the same class and size as my sub as well. I heard a shipmate say he had never seen a candle burned, and that was the case for me too. I was aboard for 2.5 -3 years and never seen one burned. I guess that's a good thing =D

What are you going to do when you look into the facts and not someone else's theories or so called facts and you find out we don't live on a ball flying through space at over 1 million mph and around the sun at 666000mph and spinning at 1,000mph and going through the milky way at 500.000mph 😆? You honestly put all your time into that lie? I'd look into other facts sir. Best to you.
