I found this image to be the most compelling representation of @elonmusk's Plan B idea: a kid-sized submarine. #ThaiCaveRescue

- Pretty close. There is a nosecone on the front to protect against rocks impacting fwd air hoses with a hole on the side for hoses to exit.
Design based on dive team feedback (primarily Stanton): 4 air / oxygen ports front & rear, front ports protected by nosecone. Dual O-ring seal on acrylic rear plate with clear view of occupant head. Leak/buckling proof to 10X cave water pressure.
- Buoyancy adjusted by strapping diver weight belts around body of capsule. They’re prevented from sliding off by the 6 diver handhold attachments.

Any cameras onboard? How about that MP3 player for the long dark journey?

Not a horrible idea to throw an iphone/ipod with a bluetooth speaker into the tube to keep the kids calm while they are being banged around. You can keep the kids busy while they are waiting by asking them to write down their favorite song.

Elon Musk @elonmusk
- Yeah, that sounds cool. Music makes things better. Calms the mind. Adding padded wall pockets for a hand radio & phone/music player.
- Aluminum shell has high thermal conductivity, so will be close to ambient. If ambient is cold, a thin layer of neoprene insulation around interior will keep occupant warm.

" The Berenberg analyst stated that his $16 billion estimate for the Boring Company’s potential valuation, provided that it succeeds in the Chicago transport line, was taken from the figures of the Channel Tunnel project, which connects England and France. According to Haissl, however, the valuation of the Boring Co. would likely add to the total valuation of Tesla, considering that the electric car and energy company will be a key supplier for the high-speed transport line.
“On conservative assumptions, and taking into account similar businesses like Getlink (formerly Eurotunnel), we estimate the potential enterprise value could be as high as $16 billion. With Tesla set to become a key supplier to The Boring Company, it will likely mean an early opportunity to take a stake in the business, potentially without cash consideration,” Haissl added. "

Training NASA's 'Guardian Angels' | Commercial Crew
American Astronauts will soon launch again from U.S.
U.S. Air Force “Guardian Angel” Pararescue specialists secure a covered life raft, during an astronaut rescue training exercise off of Florida’s eastern coast in April 2018. The specially designed 20-person life raft is equipped with enough food, water and medical supplies to sustain both rescuers and crew for up to three days, if necessary.

Ted Mosteller, leader of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program Landing and Recovery Team, described the multi-agency operation as “like insurance. You have insurance on your car or house, but you hope you never have to use it.”

Rescue and recovery involves meticulous planning and close coordination between NASA, the Department of Defense, and company recovery teams from NASA's commercial partners, Boeing and SpaceX. Boeing's Starliner and SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft are being developed and tested to fly astronauts to and from the International Space Station, from U.S. soil. In the event of a variety of contingency landings, an elite team is prepared to rescue the crew anywhere in the world.
