Thresher SSN 593


The U.S.S. Thresher was a nuclear attack submarine that was lost in the North Atlantic with her crew of 129 men while undergoing sea trials after a refit of the ship in 1963.  An apparent piping leak and an electrical failure caused the loss of the submarine and all those aboard her.
