LAUNCHED DEC.,1959--LOST MAY 22, 1968

Somewhat of a mystery .....yes still to this day not all the answers are forth coming as to really what caused the USS Scorpion (SSN-589) to just vanish.

Many things were talked about...."Did a torpedo explode....or maybe a faulty valve of some sort.....there was talk of some sort of flooding problem??"  But I don't think nobody really knows.  It also was reported that she sunk like a 'sinker on a fishing pole' down to over 10,000 ft (plus)....well if that was the case she was crushed like a tin can.....

Then there was some discussion of a Soviet destroyer and an ECHO-II class sub being in the general area when the Scorpion disappeared.....hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm that certain is interesting as well.

Well if you wish to give this subject some additional reading I have my version and my comments about all of can 'link' up to the article by clicking on this title: LOST OF THE USS SCORPION (SSN-589).

Hope you enjoy the article
