Elon Musk Could Send 'Escape Pods' To Rescue Trapped Boys In Thailand

A row of new Tesla Model 3 electric vehicles is seen at a parking lot in Richmond California

They remained trapped inside the cave complex for almost two weeks before they made first contact with rescuers from the United Kingdom at around 10:30 p.m. on Monday at about 1.2 miles deep inside the cave.

Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has dispatched a team of engineers to Thailand to assist in the rescue of the trapped Thai youth football team and their coach.

Musk outlined his proposal on Twitter on Friday.

In a separate tweet, Musk proposed inserting a nylon tube - 1 meter in diameter - through the cave network and inflating it with air "like a bouncy castle". "Should create an air tunnel underwater against cave roof & auto-conform to odd shapes like the 70cm hole".

Both used tokens like everyday passengers and it was ensured that the movement of the train is not delayed due to the special visit.

Bloomberg reports his spokesman saying, Musk's companies could help by trying to locate the boys' precise location using Space Exploration Technologies Corp. or Boring Co. technology, pumping water or providing heavy-duty battery packs known as Tesla Inc.

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.

It all started with a plea from a random Twitter user.

"If depth of 2nd is accurate, would need ~0.5 bar tube pressure", he wrote. They became trapped inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave, which is believed to be about 4-5 miles long. Rescuers have been working on a variety of plans, including teaching the boys to scuba dive.

Wade , the landmark 1973 decision that protects women's rights to abortion, according to a person familiar with the discussion. As a woman and mother, she could upend the narrative pushed by Democrats that Trump's pick would erode women's rights.

Teams of Thai and global divers have since supplied them with food, oxygen and medical attention, but there are mounting concerns about the oxygen level in the chamber, which officials said had fallen to 15%.

Now, rescuers are weighing the best options to get the team out of the cave complex, an extremely hazardous operation that could potentially involve diving through caves only wide enough for one person.

There's been no shortage of warnings in recent days about how risky the rescue attempt is - not least the death of former Thai Navy Sgt. Saman Kunan, an ex-SEAL, who died early Friday morning due to a lack of air while attempting to return to a command center deep underground.

Will this solution work?
