"Continue to be amazed by the bravery, resilience & tenacity of kids & diving team in Thailand", Musksaid in another tweet. Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers made a decision to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. "Should create an air tunnel underwater against cave roof & auto-conform to odd shapes like the 70cm hole".
It was revealed earlier this week that those trapped had been in the cave for several days and could not get out due to rising water levels - prompting a huge effort to save them.
The amount of oxygen in the cave is diminishing, forcing rescuers to establish a line to pump in fresh air. James Yenbamroong, founder and chief executive of Thai satellite communications business Mu Space Corp, said that SpaceX, Mr Musk's aerospace and transportation business, had "reached out to us today to help connect to Thai govt".
"If depth of 2nd is accurate, would need ~0.5 bar tube pressure", he wrote. Proposed "buddy dive' plan to rescue boys in Thai cave could launch this weekendThai officials say the 12 boys stranded inside the cave are strong enough to walk but can't swim safely yet".
Musk said he was sending teams from his private space exploration firm SpaceX and the engineering firm Boring Co. which is developing tunnelling systems for transportation projects. On June 23, there was a missing report about the group for the first time.
So far, the mission to save the team has proved complex and extremely unsafe. In their current situation, keeping the boys supplied with food and medical care is hazardousâ€"one Thai navy diver has died ferrying oxygen tanks into the cave". Don't know if pump rate is limited by electric power or pumps are too small. "If so, could dropship fully charged Powerpacks and pumps". Mr Musk initially explored whether The Boring Company, which he founded in 2016, could help rescue efforts using its "advanced ground penetrating radar".
As of now, the latest update from Musk is that his team is in discussions with the cave experts in Thailand to design an escape pod.
