Spotted human fine-tuning of technology – Rescue operation of 33 miners in Chile

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.
