A school of engineers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison was working on a project to clean out a nuclear-powered submarine at the end of last year when they noticed something odd: a massive hole in the side of the ship.
That hole, they say, is the result of a “snow plow” that’s been hitting the vessel in an effort to remove the water from the hull.
The hole, which was spotted by a team of scientists, was actually a natural formation created by the water and ice underneath the hull, said Robert A. Breen, an assistant professor in the UW-Madison Department of Marine and Atmospheric Engineering.
The team used the snow plow to scoop up the water, and they were able to make the hole bigger than it appeared, Breen said.
When the crew realized what they had done, they took out the plow and started filling the hole with ice.
After the ice was pumped out, the team took measurements of the hole’s depth and found that it was a full 100 feet.
That means they found the hole on a submarine, not a nuclear missile submarine.
Beren’s team was not the only one to find the hole, though.
In April, another team at the University at Buffalo, working under the direction of Paul H. Ollman, a professor of geophysics and engineering at the university, discovered a similar hole in a submarine that was not covered in ice.
The holes on nuclear submarines were typically small enough that they were not visible to the naked eye, said Michael J. O’Connor, a research engineer with the Nuclear Threat Initiative at the Council on Foreign Relations.
Ollieman said his team was looking for other holes that would give the appearance of water on a nuclear vessel.
“What we found was very similar to what you might see in a nuclear reactor,” Oll, the principal investigator of the research, said in an interview.
“In some cases, you’ll see a small crater in the bottom of the hull and you’ll think, ‘Oh my God, it’s water.’
But in others, you will see a massive crater in one of the sides.”

A snow plowing operation has a history of causing problems for nuclear submarines, as well as for other types of submarine.
For example, in 2008, a team from the U.S. Navy’s Missile Systems Center in San Diego accidentally found the debris of a nuclear explosion on the submarine USS Lusitania.
The debris was found in an area that was being excavated for the installation of the nuclear power plant on the ship, which had been decommissioned.
It is not clear if the debris was from the Lusitsania, but the U-boat’s decommissioning had been suspended since 2006.
A similar problem occurred when a nuclear power station was built on a subsurface installation on the Ustashi nuclear submarine, which went into commission in 1991.
The Ustashas nuclear reactor had been built in the 1940s.
A team of U.N. inspectors visited the site and inspected the subsurf and nuclear reactor, but they found that there were no signs of radioactive contamination.
But there were problems with the operation of the Ustera submarine, as it was never built for a submarine.
It was built to operate in the ocean, which it did for several years, but it never saw the light of day.
In the end, the Ustašas subsurfer went into a permanent state of suspended decommissionment, which allowed it to become a nuclear weapons submarine.
In March 2018, the Russian Ministry of Defense, in cooperation with the USTAšA Nuclear Energy Organization, reported that a Ustaşas nuclear submarine that had been refurbished for submarine operations in 2018 had found a water-filled cavity.
The vessel, a Type 45 Kuznetsov, had been equipped with a water tank, and the submarine was decommissionED in February 2018.
A submarine of the Russian navy is seen on the deck of a submarine vessel, which has been decomissionED.
A Ustaiskas nuclear-electric submarine is seen decommissionING.
A Type 45 submarine is decommissionA submarine is found on a decommission area of a USTATSU submarine in the western Russian city of Murmansk, Russia.
The submarine was discovered in 2018.
Russian submarine technicians at the Ustsaiska nuclear power reactor site in Murmansky, Russia, were preparing to decommission the submarine when it was discovered on Feb. 15, 2018.
The researchers removed the water tank from the submarine and took photos.
The scientists found a hole about 15 feet (4 meters) deep in the hull that they say was caused by a snow plough hitting the side in an attempt to remove water from beneath the hull during the plowing operations.
They say the hole
