Elon Musk Offers To Help Thai Officials Rescue Trapped Soccer Team

10 July 2018

The Boring Company is an infrastructure and tunnel construction company, while SpaceX is Musk's aerospace venture. A previous rescue effort has already claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL.

Though rescuers found the group after nine days and they have received food, blankets and medical attention, it is still a risky dive and scramble through four kilometres of tunnels where they are trapped in - as they can not swim or dive. Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers chose to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

"Maybe worth trying: insert a 1m diameter nylon tube (or shorter set of tubes for most hard sections) through cave network & inflate with air like a bouncy castle, " he wrote.

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. "Should create an air tunnel underwater against cave roof & auto-conform to odd shapes like the 70cm hole".

Fans were loving the addition by the director and Brolin, and filled the comments with applause and jokes from the movie. The subreddit now has over 533,000 followers which will drop to half tomorrow at some point in time.

When the whole world is praying for a safe return of the boys, a Twitter user asked for Elon Musk's help.

Musk said he was looking at ways to pump water out of the cave or to pump air inside. Some farmers also flooded their fields with water so that some water could be pumped out of the cave. "Prob need to enter tube, zip up & then transit". The boys and their coach were exploring the cave when a sudden flash flood trapped them.

The cave system is some six miles long, and the main concern now is that the rising water levels are cutting short their oxygen supply.

Thai officials said the rescue effort, which began Saturday night, will take multiple days.

Rescuers have been pumping water out of the cave with the goal of letting the boys walk out, rather than having to scuba dive.

One of Mr Musk's enterprises is Boring Co, which digs tunnels for transport systems and has advanced ground-penetrating radar.
