Damned overachievers.

Let me guess, she either has, or is working on, some doctorates too...

sheesh.

Was she quoted as saying "Get me as far as I can be from the guys on that submarine?"

More like "I'm tired of my period syncing with my CO one week and my division officer the next."

Typical woman, can't make up her damn mind.

Well both modes of travel are long tubes in a hostile atmosphere.  That or she likes phallic symbols

Why do you ask? Is she against things that are long and hard and full of seamen?

Did she return with a red snapper?

I hope her space suit fits better than her Navy uniform...

Who are "people who work where you can't breathe"?

I'm more afraid of the ocean than space, personally.

Yeah, a 55 atm difference in pressure vs one.  And in space, you have a chance of stopping leaks.

Well, I don't know.  On the one hand, you've got sharks.  On the other, you've got giant planet killing corn bugles of death.

Better chance of stopping flooding on a submarine than rapid depressureization in space.

I  can see how the skill set of submarine and spacecraft would have a lot of overlap.

She just isn't happy at sea level

Not really.

With depressurization, a patch on the inside is inherently held in position by the pressure differential.  All you have to do is seal it properly, and it's fixed.  Plus, if you can fix it, you've got space suits to keep you alive until you can get back to Earth.

On a submarine, you're trying to keep the water *OUT*, not the air in.  Pressure differential works against you.  And if you flood too much, you can't recover, sink to crush depth, and become fish food rather rapidly.  And of course, no special suits to protect you.
