Shocking.

And their rescue will take 4 months. 4 months.

Oh yes i remember that from the news.

Okay, it must be horrible to be trapped in there.

I heard this on the news too.

I agree with Neutron, it probably isn't nice down there, it's probably cold and quite uncomfortable. It's even worse knowing it could still be months before you're rescued.Free counters!

It's actually really hot down there.

Will they even survive that long?

I bet they won't have enough food...

They'll be given food (and other stuff) through a small hole.

And the far left media is using the tragedy to post their "opinions" and blame the companies and the private ownership and the non communist guys.

Really, a disaster shouldn't be used for political stuff.

I agree that it is not good to capitalize on a disaster, but isn't it worth looking into what things could have been done better to avoid events like this? I mean, if the corporation was cutting corners to save money while decreasing safety, that's not good.

That said, thank goodness that these people are going to be able to survive. This could have been a real tragedy.

If I moderated your hack, there was apparently a 90 percent chance it was rejected.
Just discovered now: the capsule of their rescue arrived.

I actually heard that one of them actually became a father while he was still in the mine. Holy guacamole, that must feel bad....
The first day was exactly 2 months ago. My God, 2 months already. Hope they get out of there as soon as possible.

Awesome, they're almost there! I still remember when the prediction of their rescue was around December. I see that this prediction has been cut in a half now.

This article explains how a steel pipe will connect the trapped miners to the surface world:

Encasing just the top of the shaft is a compromise that will protect the miners as their capsule passes through a curved section where the rock is particularly fractured. It's also more technically feasible.

While some miners' families wanted the entire shaft encased, some engineers involved in the rescue said the risk of the capsule getting jammed in the unreinforced hole was less than the risk of the pipes getting jammed and ruining their hard-won exit route.

Many experts doubted whether encasing the entire shaft was even possible.


I expected the engineers to encase the entire shaft with steel pipe. I guess that my knowledge of pipe differs from reality. If Mario made this trip, he would have green warp pipe along the entire length of the path. After playing several Mario games, I remember no situation where the pipe ended but the path continued through bare rock. (I remember piranha plants.)

I am waiting to know whether the trapped miners can use this shaft to escape.

About an hour ago, the first Chilean miner was rescued from the caved in mine. The rescue team seems to be removing the workers one by one for some reason I don't know.

Score one for teamwork.

--------------------
I wonder what a HFD opcode would do in ASM...
And now a second miner is out. 2 down, 31 to go.
17 miners are now rescued. Incredible, more than half of them all are already back and seeing their families after about 68 days.

16 are remaining now. Wish these 16 come up safely as the others.

23 are out now. Only 10 more!
