The presence of a cave diving expert who also happen to be an anesthesiologist can not be overstated.


Indeed.

What did one guy say: "a unique cross skill set" ?


admire this man so much

Just to add my sixpence worth!

What a great outcome supported by lots of countries cooperating in solving a very dangerous mission.

Well done to all those concerned may they be individually honoured with bravery awards in their relevant countries.

Why don't you lead the charge cods, with a "Go fund" campaign?  You could donate $50,000 yourself.

I'm guessing they'll be looking pretty flash, in new jerseys and boots, the next time they hit the soccer field.

I've returned from Timor, and was following this on the news as much as I could. I'll make a few points

1. My cave rescue group got placed on standby, but in the end it was determined we weren't needed.
2. Elon Musk is a publicity whore. The plan he had had about zero chance of actually working.
3. It was a great effort from all involved. I don't cave dive, but I know a lot of cave divers, and the dangers of diving in that cave were proved by the ex Seal dying. He was an experienced diver, but cave diving is another level above that.
4. Lots of people that I noticed on FB etc seemed to love the quick solution. Why can't we send down a little sub (not flexible, won't fit through gaps) or why can't we drill down (too big a drill, also chance of causing collapse). It was also interesting how many people seemed to think a billionaire with no cave experience seemed to have a better solution than the experts in the field.

In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

No evidence whatsoever it can be attributed to George Orwell or Eric Arthur Blair (in fact the same guy)
