Thailand cave rescue: Elon Musk team working on escape pod design

Thailand cave rescue: Elon Musk team working on escape pod design

On Thursday night, Musk tweeted about an idea to use an inflatable nylon tube to help the kids escape.

"He may provide services for location tracking, water pumping or battery power", the government said in a statement. Former navy diver Saman Gunan died after delivering oxygen to the children on Thursday, demonstrating how risky the escape from the caves would be. "There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate without being there in person", said Musk in his tweet, necessitating the trip.

They became trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave, which is believed to be about 4-5 miles long.

Musk's engineers will assist the current rescue team in creating a plan to safely rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach from the flooded cave.

Some of the kids have also indicated they can not swim and are already weak from not eating.

It's worth considering, especially knowing that it was Parker's comments that upset Leonard the most. In his final season with the Spurs, Parker played 55 games averaged 7.7 points and 3.5 assists.

The children are believed to have completed their first day of scuba diving training as they prepare to be rescued.

On the surface, a huge military and civilian rescue operation is racing against the clock to bring the boys to safety.

Musk's company, Boring Co, which digs tunnels for transport systems and has advanced ground-penetrating radar, is being utilised to help rescue the team.

The Thai official in charge of the rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach says they're physically ready and mentally determined for their extraction now underway from a partially flooded cave.

Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said conditions are "perfect" to stage an evacuation in the coming days before fresh rains and a possible rise in carbon dioxide further imperil the group.

The short joint statement did not define how that would be achieved or say when the process would begin or how long it might take. The secretary has at least a day and a half of meetings planned for his trip, which will be his third visit to Pyongyang so far.

The coach, who has faced criticism for taking the boys out in the cave, also wrote an apology note addressed to his players' parents.

Rescuers are in a race against time to get the team out of the cave, as oxygen levels are falling and monsoon rains threaten to leave them trapped for months.

He says the divers went in at 10 a.m. and the boys will gradually come out accompanied by two divers each.

The rescue mission has proven to be exceedingly complex, numerous passageways leading into the cave are narrow, and most of the boys do not know how to swim.
