Underwater


Category: [France]  
Welcome in the Operational Room of the French nuclear submarine, Le Redoutable. The red light, so popular in Hollywood movies, is actually lit during nighttime. As the ship has no window, it is a good way to mark the passage of time. Furthermore, when looking into the periscope, the eyes are ready to look into the darkness.
Fortunately, this submarine never launched its 16 nuclear ICBM. Or the world would be a very different place nowadays.
