And the Atlantic ocean is How Big?

Britsh and French nuclear submarines have crashed into each other.

I mean, there are a couple of significant questions that I (a totally non-sea-going person) must ask.

1. Just how big is the Atlantic ocean and how much room do 150 metre long submarines need?
2. Didn't they invent RADAR once upon a time? Isn't that supposed to be good for avoiding collisions?
3. Of the total 500 trained sailors on the two submarines, didn't any of them look out of the port hole?

Ok, number 3 was a trick question.
