Judge Orders US Navy to Review, Release Docs Related to Imploded USS Thresher

The US Navy is expected to make public unclassified documents associated with the 1963 implosion of the USS Thresher (SSN-593), which claimed the lives of nearly 130 individuals and was the catalyst for the service’s Submarine Safety Program (SUBSAFE).

On February 10, US District Judge Trevor McFadden ordered the US Navy to begin releasing unclassified documents on the sinking of the Thresher on April 10, 1963, while the nuclear-powered vessel was conducting deep dive exercises.

According to US Naval Institute News, the service has been ordered to finish a review of 300 documents by April 30 and release them to the public by May 15.
