Recently, a flash event appeared at a national key equipment test terminal in Dalian. Six months ago, just here, three scientific researchers died in the typhoon rescue.
The governor of Changan Street noticed that, including Huang Xuhua, the father of Chinas nuclear submarine, the old, middle-aged and young ship workers sang Me and My Motherland, paying tribute to the heroes and expressing their hearts to the motherland.
On August 20, 2018, Typhoon Winbia hit the eastern coast of Dalian. Heavy storms raged at the wharf of ZhongShip Heavy Industry Research Institute. Some of the cable piles of a national key test platform moored here were broken and the cables fell off, which threatened the safety of the platform.
In the eyes of researchers, the experimental platform is like their own children. Huang Qun, deputy director of the Qiliu Research Institute, and 12 other people formed a rescue team and rushed to the wharf for rescue. Just then, a big wave suddenly came, and Huang Qun and his colleague Jiang Kaibin were swept into the sea. Just when everyone was rescuing, another huge wave would involve Sun Xun and Song Yuechai who participated in the rescue into the sea.
Despite all the rescue efforts, Huang Qun (51), Song Yuechai (61) and Jiang Kaibin (62) still suffered great sacrifices. The following month, the model of the times was awarded to the anti-disaster and rescue heroes of the 76th Institute.

In the recent flash event, there appeared the representative of the heroic group of the Institute of Disaster Resistance and Emergency Relief. Among them, Sun Sun Sun sang, My motherland and I cant be separated for a moment. No matter where I go, a hymn comes out.
The governor of Changan Street noted that in addition to the above heroic groups, domestic aircraft carrier builders, Zhang Jinlin, a national key construction engineer, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Huang Xuhua, the father of Chinas nuclear submarines, also participated in the event and sang loudly at the scene.
Faced with many young faces on the scene, Huang Xuhua said with a clang: For the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the prosperity of the motherland, our scientists and technicians will never forget their original intention, remember their mission and remain unknown. They will devote their most precious years and blood to the country sely and painstakingly forge the most important tools of the country, without complaint, regret, and forge ahead, and pass on from generation to generation.
Huang Xuhuas words are not only a message to young people, but also a true portrayal of his life. Born in March 1926, he went through the war of war of resistance and liberation. Facing the backward and poor motherland, he resolutely pursued the dream of repaying the nation by building ships to resist foreign aggression.
In December 1970, China launched its first nuclear submarine. When the giant rose from the water, Huang Xuhua burst into tears with excitement. In August 1974, the nuclear submarine was named Long March I and was officially listed. It took less than ten years since the project was launched in 1965 to build our own nuclear submarine. Huang Xuhua said.
In order to keep his work secret, Huang Xuhua hasnt returned home for 30 years. When he left home, he was in his early thirties. When he came home to see his relatives, he was already a white-haired man in his sixties.
Until 1987, the long reportage The Herculean and Unknown Life was published, describing the life experience of the chief designer of Chinas nuclear submarine, which caused a sensation in the whole country. The article only mentions Chief Designer Huang, without a name. But the article his wife Li Shiying convinces Huang Xuhuas old mother that this is his third son.

Despite his success, the three sons did not stop moving forward. In April 1988, when a new type of nuclear submarine in China conducted its first deep submarine test, the 64-year-old Huang Xuhua resolutely decided to give it a try. He knows that it is not uncommon for a nuclear submarine to experience an accident in its deep submarine test. More than one hundred people were killed when a US submarine sank.
I am not a hero, in case of abnormal phenomenon in the process of deep diving, I can help take measures in time. When the design depth is reached, the huge water pressure makes the nuclear submarine body emit click sound in many places, which is very exciting. Huang Xuhua responded calmly and mastered a lot of first-hand data.
To this day, Huang Xuhua, who is over 90 years old, still comes to his office at 8:30 a.m. every day to sort out a few stacks of materials over one meter high accumulated in decades of work, hoping to leave them to the younger generation.
