    Anderson,
    This must also be hard for you after the mining accident a few years ago. My thoughts are with the miners, families, and you.....you are the best reporter ever!

    Is there any information about the high of the cave and if it matches the high from the capsule? The capsule bottom should reach the ground of the cave to keep the capsule aligned with the hole by where it should go back thru, which might not be an issue with the help of the miners to place it back into the tunnel with a miner inside, except for the last person to board it.
    Thx

    I was wondering they are worried about the men's eyes when they come up why don't the send some dark sunglasses down to them to help them adjust to the light slowly?

    Remember the temperature down below are near 90 degrees but a whole lot cooler at the surface. What a shock they will get!

    @ Lori
    AC360 was on 2 hours ago and explained that the miners will wear compression socks and a type of "corsette" that will help the blood stay near the heart and brain. Never dived below the sea but it is a lot like when you fly jets at high speeds.

    I wonder if the assention of the miners is encumbered by their depth below surface? Similar to being under the sea?

    October 12, 2010 at 10:06 pm |
  31. chip

    sometime we see something like smoke or steam coming from the shaft – anybody explain that?
