SpaceX builds a submarine from parts of the Falcon 9 rocket launcher to save children in Thailand

on Sun Jul 08, 2018 2:18 pm
SpaceX owner Ilon MUsk said his company is building a mini submarine from the Falcon 9 rocket shell to rescue children who are stuck in a flooded Thailand cave.

About this MUsk has informed on Twitter.

"I received a response from Thailand. The main option - a tiny submarine, children's size. As the case for it, a pipe for moving liquid oxygen from the Falcon 9 missile is used for it. It is light enough to accommodate two divers, and strong enough to pass through narrow gaps, "the message reads.



However, in Twitter MUsk was asked if SpaceX will have time to build a submarine before water finally crashes into the cave. The owner of the company assured that so.

"At the end of the work it takes 8 hours, and another 17 - for a flight to Thailand," - wrote Mask at 21 hours on July 7.



Recall that in Thailand, a rescue operation has been launched to release children from a flooded cave that has been there for more than two weeks.

In Thailand, all 12 adolescents who, along with their football coach disappeared in the cave complex, were found alive. They were searched for 9 days. Children can not be taken to the surface, because the cave flooded with water.

As it was reported, children who were stuck in a flooded cave were taught to dip with special equipment.

Previously, they wrote letters to their parents.

Ukrainian diver Vsevolod Korobov took part in a rescue operation in Thailand.



On July 5, rescuers pumped 40% of the water from the cave, where children were stuck.

On July 6, it became known that a former military diver , who participated in the rescue of children who were in the flooded cave Tham Luang Nang Nong, perished in Thailand.

Engineers from the American company SpaceX and Boring Co, whose founder is Ilon Musk, flew to Thailand to help rescue children from a flooded cave.
