Why does no one appear to be questioning why it's the only place in the world this has been done inshore?

2 experimental submarines in the 50's ran on HTP (high test peroxide). Their names were HMS Explorer and HMS Excalibur. Due to their volatility they were called in the Navy HMS Exploder and HMS Excruciator. I hope there is no similarity here.

Kaaruumbaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!! Never mind the tug looks like it is big enough to protect all properties bounding Scapa Flow - and beyond, from any resulting shock wave ........
