Watching the rescue operation of 33 miners in Chili. Real time web casting by BBC. Thanks to ICT!
Impressive images. They were locked in the underground of 700 m deep for 69 days.
A capsule, named “Fénix 2” (Phoenix in English, nice name!), goes up and down to carefully bring miners back one by one.
Spotted a rescue worker’s tough-duty shoe put on the rope of the capsule, when it goes down to pick up the miners. It looks like that this man is adding a final control to the tension (or speed) of the rope hanging a capsule. This is another evidence that technologies work well when fine tuned by human beings.
