Polar Bears Greet Sub In Arctic

polar bears greet sub

Photos of polar bears greeting a submarine surfacing through the Arctic ice “were taken by Capt. Myron Balchin Sr. of the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Honolulu, 280 miles from the North Pole.” I guess it shouldn’t be too surprising to see this kind of encounter. In fact, “during the ICEX 2003 naval exercises near the North Pole, the American submarine Connecticut (SSN 22) poked its sail and rudder through the ice” and a polar bear attacked the rear rudder.
