Watching mine rescue coverage from Chile tonight

Posted By on October 12, 2010

The 33 miners trapped in the San Jose mine in Copiapo, Chile are expected to be pulled the 2000+ feet to the surface tonight. The rescue attempt uses a ‘capsule’ lower through a 24 inch pipe & shaft recently bored into the mine. This amazing story of human ingenuity and spirit reminds me of Apollo 13 returning from the moon when I was a young boy. (attempting to post with a photo from the Palm Pre)
