The Slice

Remembering a submarine disaster

Can you recall news stories that captured your imagination when you were a kid?

For me, the underwater implosion of the USS Thresher 50 years ago was such a story. Just seeing the name of that ill-fated sub transports me back to a time when I was a grade-school boy transfixed by the terrifying details of its deep-water demise.

The Aberfan disaster in Britain was another such story.

How about you?
