Elon Musk will build a

On Saturday, Elon Musk tweeted that the team of SpaceX engineers "finishes work on submarine baby-sized", which can be used to rescue 12 teenagers . Mask engineers are working to solve the problems the last few days, and he keeps the CEO abreast. On Thursday evening, Musk has offered to inflate a nylon tube, which can leave children. But by Friday noon the ideas followed one another. First, Musk wrote that his men are working on a "dual layer Kevlar beans with Teflon coating which can slip through the stones." Saturday added another idea: to create a tiny submarine children's sizes, using pipe for transfer of liquid oxygen, the Falcon 9 as the case. It will be light enough to accommodate two divers, and small enough to squeeze into the cave. "Very durable".

This is not just theory: Musk says that his team is already making mechanism. "Construction will take about 8 hours and 17 hours he will fly to Thailand".

Officials From Thailand have not yet received any reaction, but the submarine can allow the deadly dilemma facing Thai rescuers. Most of the way out of the cave flooded and in places the cave becomes 70 cm in diameter. So narrow route is a challenge even for the most experienced cave divers, one of them is already dead, ferrying oxygen cylinders the boys in the beginning of this week. Some guys don't know how to swim, and give them the skills comparable to the skills of experienced divers, it is not possible.

Waiting too cannot be an option. The oxygen level in the trap is reduced. In addition, Thailand is entering the rainy season. There is a danger that the water level will rise and drown the group.

A Small submarine, described by the Masque, allows professional divers to carry boys who will simply lie still inside. It is not very convenient, but far less dangerous than if the boys will represent the cave diving. Any panic will lead to death.

However, Musk continues to consider various ideas. It is unknown what he will come in the end, but we will see.
