Walking through the WWII submarine on display at Pearl Harbor I found myself amazed and impressed by the machinery. I believe modern submarines have numerous computer systems that are used to run diagnostics and ensure systems are functioning properly, but back then everything was mechanical and it was gauges like this one that were relied on. Having grown up in such a computer dominated world I’m fascinated and awed by the level of precision that was required in the engineering of machines like this, and also by the faith, confidence, and bravery of the men who climbed into these “tin cans” and dove under the waves to hunt their enemy in defense of our freedom.
