Mini submarine could bring children out of the cave in Thailand 21:25: Through Twitter, Elon Musk shares his current plan for rescuing the trapped children from the cave. It is therefore possible to build a mini-submarine for the road to freedom. If it works, the children would not have to dive themselves, which is considered extremely dangerous. Such a mini submarine could be built from a component of the Falcon rocket, which was developed by the company SpaceX. Musk explains the benefits as follows: Such a vehicle would be light enough to be moved by two divers, would fit through narrow sections of the cave, and be extremely sturdy. Got more great feedback from Thailand. Primary path is basically a tiny, kid-size submarine using the liquid oxygen transfer tube of Falcon rocket as hull. Light enough to be carried by two divers, small enough to get through narrow gaps. Extremely robust. – Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 7, 2018 Children in Thailand Cave: Help from Elon Musk arrives 16:50: Already on Friday had Elon Musk
announced to send own engineers to the cave in Thailand , They should help to save the children. Just one day later, the expert team is on the way.

Children in Thailand Cave: Favorable time for rescue attempt 15:27: The cave drama of Thailand becomes a race against time. The situation is hot. There is some evidence of a speedy attempt to rescue the twelve trapped boys and their football coach. They have been stuck in a cave for two weeks. The weather forecast puts the rescuers under time pressure. The time for a rescue attempt is just cheap, says the head of the mission on Saturday evening (local time). But a decision for a mission has still not fallen. Diving for hours through the flooded cave could be life threatening for the weakened boy. Wait, too. The head of the mission, provincial governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn, is in a difficult position. Currently, the conditions for rescue – in terms of the water level and the health of the twelve boys and their coach – “very suitable”. But the discussions and preparations were still going on. The mother of one of the trapped children shows a picture on her tablet that was taken in the Thailand Cave. © AFP / LILLIAN SUWANRUMPHA Children in Thailand Cave: Expert warns of hasty rescue 14.55: The well-known former Navy Seal and swimmer Cade Courtley has already warned against diving rescue in an interview with CNN. This was life-threatening for the trapped, he stressed. After the death of a Thai diver during the rescue work, another expert now reports with a warning. Even the experienced cave diver Andreas Kücher speaks out clearly against a diving rescue. As a member of the speleology group Ostalp-Kirchheim, he knows the challenges of diving in pitch-black tunnels. In an interview with Bild-Zeitung He warns of a hasty rescue attempt to rescue the children from the Thailand Cave. “The difficulty is just that there is rainy season and there is a lot of water in the cave right now” explains Küchert. “The rescue divers dive there in a coffee-water. That is cloudy water. You do not even see the hand in front of your eyes “There is also one very strong current in the cave , “These are the main difficulties for the rescuers.” Unmistakably emphasizes cave expert Kücher: “I think it’s madness to get the kids out there.” He advises the emergency services Wait , “I think you should keep some peace there. Mother Nature will sooner or later release the children. ” Kücher was already in 2006 in the Tham Luang Cave, in which the football team is included. The most important thing now is to stabilize the twelve children and their coach and to encourage them. He suspects that a more suitable situation will arise for the rescue: “I myself was in this cave in August. There was much less water than now. There may be a time window where the water goes back, where it is easier to free the children. If such a time window should not exist, then it simply means: wait! By the end of September at the latest, the water goes back and then you can dry back. The children have to be patient. ” As for the living conditions in the cave, Kücher makes hope. The air inside is about 27 degrees warm, the water 25 degrees. However, he admits that it is hard to stay inside for so long. “When I come back to the light, it’s an intense event for me. It feels a little bit like a rebirth to me. “For the children, persevering will be” a big break in their lives “. Children in Thailand cave: Rescue conditions slightly improved 14:13: After two weeks, the conditions for rescuing the boys from the Thai cave have improved slightly on Saturday, but the window of opportunity threatens to close soon. The water had been pumped out of the flooded cave as much as possible, said the head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn. But new monsoon rains could raise the levels again and the carbon dioxide content worries the helpers. Meanwhile, the boys turned to their parents with moving letter messages. “Now and in the next three or four days, the conditions are perfect with regard to the water level, the weather and the health of the boys,” said Narongsak, referring to a possible rescue effort. “We have to decide clearly what we can do.” Children in Thailand Cave write moving letters to family 12:16: The football boys, who have been stuck in a flooded cave in Thailand for two weeks, sent moving messages to their families. A rescue diver brought the handwritten notes, which were released by the Thai elite unit Navy Seals on Saturday on their Facebook page. “Do not worry, we’re all strong,” wrote one of the twelve footballers between the ages of eleven and sixteen. Another, 15-year-old Phiphat Photi, called “Nick,” wrote, “Dear Mom and Dad, and my little brother, if I’m out of here, could you bring me some grilled pork and vegetables?” Pheerapat, nicknamed “Night”, who turned 16 in the northern province of Chiang Rai, consoled his “beloved parents” and his sister. You should not worry about him. “I love you all!” The relatives, who camped for days in front of the cave entrance, were moved to tears. “I’m so happy to see his letter and handwriting,” said Mother of the Night, Supalik Sompiengjai, AFP News Agency. It does not matter how long she has to wait. Main thing, her son is safe. Governor: Good time for rescue attempt of children from Thailand cave 11.47 clock: In the cave drama of Thailand, a rescue attempt would be possible according to official assessment. However, discussions and preparations to see if and when to get the young footballers out of the cave are still in progress, said provincial governor and rescue team leader Narongsak Osotthanakorn on Saturday night local time. The water level underground and the state of health of the trapped were “very suitable”. Hundred rescue shafts to children in Thai cave drilled 10:44: The 13-year-old son of the Thai king, Prince Dipangkorn Rasmijoti, has written encouraging words to the young footballers trapped in a cave. However, the twelve boys will not be able to read the card: the prince, who lives temporarily near Munich, wrote in German. “Dear children, you were probably very scared, but I’ve always thought of you,” wrote Dipangkorn in block letters. “I am overjoyed that you are all healthy. My big thanks also go to all the helpers who made this rescue possible! All the best, Dipangkorn Rasmijoti, “it said in the letter written on 3 July. The Thai newspaper “Khao Sod” published the good wishes on Friday , King Maha Vajiralongkorn spends a lot of time in Bavaria, where he owns a villa on Lake Starnberg. 7.29 clock: Forces in Thailand have drilled more than a hundred rescue shafts to free the football boy stuck in a flooded cave for two weeks in this way. However, the twelve children and their trainer have not been reached in the drilling so far, as the head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said on Saturday. The children are too weakened to dive outdoors. The holes through the mountain are up to 400 meters deep, said Osottanakorn. The exact location of the boys at a depth of about 600 meters has not yet been found, he added. The twelve footballers between eleven and 16 years had gone with the coach in the kilometer-long Tham Luang cave, just before it was largely flooded by prolonged monsoon rains. First, the trapped ones should dive back to the cave entrance. However, according to authorities, the boys are for the time being too weak for the risky dive. 6:47: The teenagers, who have been stuck in a Thai cave for two weeks, have addressed their moving families in a moving letter. “Do not worry, we are all strong” – that’s what it says on a hand-written piece of paper, which a rescue diver sent to the members camping for days before the cave entrance. “When we get out of here, we want to eat a lot of things. We want to go home as soon as possible. ” The message written in blue ink on notepad paper was published on Saturday on the Facebook page of the Thai special forces Navy Seals. In it, each of the twelve boys between the ages of 11 and 16 seemed to address personal words to his family and friends outdoors. “I want to eat fried pork,” broke out one of the youth footballers, who, together with her 25-year-old coach, suffered the greatest physical and mental strain. Great sadness after the death of a diver. © AFP / PANUMAS SANGUANWONG The coach apologized to the relatives of his charges in the letter, thanked them for their support and promised them to take care of the boys in the best possible way. “They’re all doing well at the moment,” said Ekapol Chanthawong. After training on June 23, the group had visited Thailand’s fourth largest cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai, but was probably surprised by a flash flood and saved itself deeper and deeper into the water masses. The chamber in which they were found by British rescue divers on Monday is about four kilometers from the entrance to the cave, which covers a total of about ten kilometers. The way back is blocked to the young people due to the flooded cave tract. 6:32: The drama surrounding the youth group encased in a Thai cave recalls the fate of miners spilled in a Chilean mine in 2010. The 33 buddies had to endure for 69 days in a shelter at 700 meters depth. Ultimately, they were brought in a spectacular rescue operation through a lavishly drilled rescue shaft with a Zugkapsel to the earth’s surface. Also to rescue the twelve Thai youth footballers and their coach, the drilling of a 600 -meter-long rescue shaft into the cave is conceivable, where they persevere for two weeks. However, from the perspective of geoscientist and engineer Suttisak Soralump of Kasetsart University in Bangkok, this option is “rather unrealistic”. The “miners” in the mine accident in Chile 2010. © dpa / Handout A hole to the cave chamber of the boys is much more complicated than the mine accident in Chile’s Atacama Desert, said Suttisak the Thai news portal “The Nation”. Unlike the mine, the Tham Luang-Khun Nam Nang Non Cave is a natural cavity in northern Thailand. Therefore, there are not enough geological data for engineers. In the case of the Chilean mine, however, the subsoil was completely measured and the hole was therefore largely free of surprises. At that time, the rescue services were able to use a comprehensive set of data for their own purposes. The cave in Thailand’s border region Chiang Rai, however, is little explored because of their difficult to reach location and is mainly visited by locals. With an extension of about ten kilometers, it is one of the longest caves in the country. News from the 6th of July 21:21: The boys, who are stuck in a cave in Thailand, will not be able to dive into the open air for the time being. The football team and their coach are not yet ready for the complicated dive, said the head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, early Saturday morning. In addition, a marine representative said the rescue window would get smaller. 19:21: High-tech pioneer Elon Musk has offered his help in rescuing the football team stuck in a Thai cave. The US entrepreneur told Friday via the short message service Twitter, he has sent teams of its space company SpaceX and its engineering firm Boring in the Southeast Asian country. Boring specializes in tunneling. The seconded engineers of both companies were to look locally to see if they could be “helpful,” Musk wrote. There are likely to be many complications in the rescue operations, “which are difficult to assess when you’re not there.” The entrepreneur explained that his specialists should explore how water can be pumped out of the tunnel or pumped in air. SpaceX & Boring Co engineers headed to Thailand tomorrow to see if we can be helpful to govt. There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate. – Elon Musk (@elonmusk) 6th July 2018 17:18: Who are the kids and their trainer in the Thailand Cave? The British Guardian has researched her life stories. Two of them are presented here. Adul Sam-on (14) He spoke first in the cave with the British divers who had discovered the trapped. Because: As the only one in his team, Adul speaks English. He has learned the language in his church. In fact, few Thai people speak fluent English. When the divers arrived, the others in the cave called Adul: “Eat, eat, eat.” To which he replied: “I told you so. “Which day do we have?”, He asks in English in the video of the British rescue divers, who found the boys in the cave after days of fear. He and the others are hungry, Adul says. The boy’s pictures, blinded by the flashlight, went around the world. Adul comes from the de facto autonomous, but not recognized Wa state in neighboring Myanmar. The violent conflict of the ruling militia with the government of Myanmar has forced thousands of people into exile. Hoping for a better life for him, Adul’s parents sent him to Thailand, where he has been teaching in a Christian school for seven years. Without a passport and without a birth certificate, he is one of more than 400,000 people who are registered as stateless in Thailand, according to the UN Refugee Agency. Other sources say that up to 3.5 million people in the country are not citizens. His teachers praise Adul’s athletic ambition and his talent for language. Besides Thai and English, he also speaks Burmese and Mandarin Chinese. Nevertheless, he will not have it easy even after his hoped-for rescue from the cave. Stateless persons can not legally marry in Thailand, open a bank account, own or choose land. But he would not be discouraged, it says from his environment.
Ekkapol Janthawong (25): He is the coach of the team “Moo Pa”, which means “wild boars” in German. Ekkapol was a monk for eight years. His parents have already died. In the cave he is an emotional support to the boys and even gives them their food. The twelve footballers between the ages of eleven and 16 years had gone into the cave with their 25-year-old coach, just before it was largely flooded by prolonged monsoon rains. On Monday they were found intact and provided with food. But they are still stuck in the cave, their rescue is difficult. After warning from Navy Seal and Death: Further diving rescue planned 14:46: Even after the warning from Navy Seal Cade Courtley and the death of a Thai diver in the Tham Luang Cave, the football team is apparently released with a diving rescue. “To emerge from the cave will be an option,” said the Dane Ivan Karadzic, who participates as a diver in the rescue work. Navy Seal Cade Courtley, in an interview with CNN, had specifically warned against liberating the football team from the cave with a dive rescue. “I hate to say that, but some kids will die trying to get them out with gear.” Courtley emphasized that it is difficult even for experienced divers to reach the cave , Children who could barely or not at all swim with a diving rescue from the cave to free is highly risky. For Courtley’s point of view, it seems the death of Thai rescue diver Saman Kunan to speak. The former marine diver wanted to place containers of breathing air in the cave and lost consciousness on the way back. Despite this, foreign divers on the ground were optimistic that they could successfully salvage the twelve adolescents and their coach. “To emerge from the cave will be an option,” said Dane Ivan Karadzic. It was initially unclear why the diver ran out of oxygen , His breathing bottle may not have worked properly, or the air in it had gone out, it said. After his death, the grew Concern that breathing air could also be scarce for trapped boys between the ages of 11 and 16 and their trainer , The oxygen content in the cave chamber, in which the group is located, is currently around 15 percent, but otherwise amounts to about 20 percent, said the involved in the rescue Army General Chalongchai Chaiyakam. The rescuers therefore wanted to channel oxygen into the cave chamber where the football team found refuge. The planned pipe from the cave entrance to the chamber must be about 4.7 kilometers long, the general continued. “Our main job today is to put a pipe in the chamber so that the group gets more air to breathe.” After Navy Seal Warning: Diver dies in Thailand Cave 12. 36 clock: Navy Seal Cade Courtley should be tragically right in his warning that the children could die in a diving rescue: Ironically, a former member of the Thai special unit Navy Seals has come in a dive killed. Saman Kunan had placed bottles of oxygen in the cave. On the way back to the camp of the rescue workers he ran out of oxygen and he lost consciousness. This incident shows how big are the dangers of a diving rescue from the cave , Are the rescue teams now considering another plan for how to free the football team? In the media are currently still brought into play other ways to free the trapped ones , Media discussed In addition to diving and drilling, it is also possible to dry out the cave with the help of pumps so that the boys could leave on foot , In view of the masses of water, however, this solution currently appears unlikely , There are also suggestions a kind of escape tube through which the trapped could be pulled on skateboards. However, the implementation of these ideas is apparently not considered by those responsible. A few days ago, emergency services also brought the Drilling a rescue shaft into the game, through which the football team could be brought outside. Just: The Tham Luang Cave is 800 meters below the surface of the earth , Thus, the rescue forces would have to drill through about a kilometer of rock. The British Cave Rescue Council is skeptical of whether a hole could really free the entrapped. The boys are “in a relatively small space, which would make any drilling attempt as a means of rescue very difficult,” said the organization. Rescue workers pump water from the Tham Luang Cave. © AFP / LILLIAN SUWANRUMPHA Drama in Thailand Cave: Former Navy Seal warns about diving rescue 10:51 am: Cade Courtley is a former Navy Seal and seasoned fighter. He spent thousands of hours under water in extreme conditions like absolute darkness and the book “The Navy SEAL Survival Guide” on survival in exceptional situations published. Courtley, in an interview with CNN, warns against bringing the children out of the Thailand Cave accompanied by divers. “I hate to say that, but some kids will die trying to get them out with gear.” Courtley explains how to imagine such a diving rescue: “When I served in Seal Team One, I was part of a special diving unit. I spent thousands of hours under water. I had missions in absolute darkness and in extreme tightness. Two experienced divers needed several attempts and were 90 minutes on the road to reach the football team in the cave. These were two professional divers. And you really want to get someone who is only eleven years old and can not even swim, get them to put on diving equipment and cover the same distance in 90 minutes – or more in two hours? And after these people have been exhausted and afraid for more than ten days? Then, for the first time in their lives, should they put on diving gear and breathe underwater – even if they have trouble swimming? There is so much that can go wrong with such an action! If you have a problem with your equipment while diving in the sea, then you can simply swim to the surface. But that’s not possible in such tunneling systems. ” Courtley wonders why the rescuers fail to remove the water from the cave: “Can not find a way to drain off water, dam it, and keep extra water away from the cave entrance? There are pumps that you can fly in within an hour, which can siphon off thousands of gallons of water in a minute. If we can not do that in 2018 and we say that diving is our best option then that’s a problem. ” The trapped in the Thailand cave are currently not in mortal danger. After all, they received food and medical care. “Her situation is currently not pleasant, but she is stable and not life-threatening. So we have the luxury that we have enough time. Given this time, we should do a risk analysis of all our rescue options. ” Tölzer Taucher helps to rescue the youth from Thailand Cave July 6th, 9:30 am: One of experienced local divers in Thailand comes from Bad Tölz and is called Nick Vollmar as Mercury reports. He joins the local support team since last Tuesday and is a professional diver. Only trained divers can reach the cave, because you have to dive almost completely blind for six hours. Klopp sends video message to included football team in Thailand Cave July 6, 8:15 pm: Star Team Manager Jürgen Klopp (51) from Liverpool fights with the football team from Thailand, trapped in a flooded cave, and has encouraged the boy and her coach. “Stay strong and be sure that we’re with you,” said Klopp in a video message for the US channel CNN. “We follow all the news and hope every second that you will see daylight again, we are all very optimistic that it will happen – hopefully in minutes, hours or the next few days,” said Klopp, citing the club motto of the Champions League. Finalists: “You’ll never walk alone”. Jürgen Klopp encourages young people trapped in a Thai cave by video message. © AFP / GLYN KIRK Also Brazil Former world champion Ronaldo touches the drama of the twelve boys between the ages of eleven and sixteen and their coach. “It’s terrible news and the world of football hopes someone can find a way to get these kids away,” the 41-year-old said. Center-back John Stones (24) hopes, like the rest of the England team, that the team can be saved. “It’s so sad to see where they are and we hope they will come out alive and well,” said Stones before the quarter-final against Sweden (Saturday, 4:00 pm). And even FIFA has meanwhile intervened and said that they would invite the boys to the World Cup finals, if they should be freed by then. Diver dies in Thailand in rescue attempt of the young people from the cave 6th July, 6:30 : A former member of the Thai special forces Navy Seals had died because of lack of oxygen in the cave, the authorities said on Friday. According to this, the man had tried to place oxygen containers in the cave and lost consciousness on the way back. It is the first fatal incident in the hitherto unsuccessful efforts to salvage the youth footballers and their coach in the northern province of Chiang Rai. The rescue of the boys trapped in the flooded cave in Thailand must also be faster than initially thought: The window of salvation is “limited,” said the commander of the Thai military unit Navy Seal, Apakorn Yookongkaew, on Friday to journalists. Thus, the boys can not wait for the end of the monsoon season. Teenagers imprisoned in cave in Thailand: Rain worries rescuers 5th July: Chiang Rai – New rains may further delay the rescue of the youth footballer and her coach, who have been trapped in a cave in Thailand for nearly two weeks. “What worries us most is the weather. If it rains again, our efforts may be setback, as has happened before, “said Rescue Leader Narongsak Osotthanakorn at a press conference on Thursday. Last week, a search mission had to be interrupted for several days already because of rain and flooding of the cave. “We are now waiting for an assessment of the weather conditions by the meteorologists and an assessment of the physical condition of the boys by the rescue unit,” Narongsak said. If there was a 90 percent chance of getting the boys out safely with divers, they would dare. Young people trapped in the cave must learn to dive 4th of July: The boy stuck in the flooded cave in Thailand is still fine. In a Wednesday on the Facebook page of the military unit Thai Navy Seal published video are initially eleven of the 13 members of the included football team to see. They laugh at the camera and explain that they are in good health. The boys in the video greet each other in a traditional Thai manner, then introduce themselves and say, “I’m fine.” Some are wrapped in blankets and seen in the wetsuit accompanied by a smiling diver. At the end of the clip, one of the twelve boys says he was forgotten in the introductory round – causing laughter. The boys are more relaxed in the video and much fitter than at the time of their discovery on Monday. However, the rescue could take months, many chambers of the cave are still flooded. The boys and their trainers are provided with food and medicine and should learn to dive. Time for rescue of the teenager from cave in Thailand unclear 2nd July: The nightmare is not over yet: too after her discovery For more than a week, the youth footballer trapped in a cave in Thailand must continue to wait for rescue. “We have to be one hundred percent sure that they can come out safely,” said Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osotthanakorn, early Tuesday morning. There was no time limit until when the twelve boys aged 11 to 16 years and their trainer would be taken out of the cave. Soccer team in Thailand included in cave © dpa / Uncredited In any case, the teenagers are doing relatively well, he continued. “None of the guys is in mortal danger. Most have minor health problems. “A doctor had been sent to the boys to examine her. They were given medications and energy drinks. In any case, the discovery of the team was a great success. “We have reached a historic turning point. We accomplished something that we thought was a mission impossible, “he said. Thailand: Teens and their trainer are well in the cave 2nd July: The Thai authorities said on Monday evening that the teenagers and their coaches had been well discovered. The plan was to pump the water out of the cave and then get it. For days, a flood in the corridors had prevented the rescuers from advancing. After rains on Monday, the water level had even risen recently. Soccer team in Thailand included in cave © dpa / Sakchai Lalit A video of the forces had shown in the evening the children inside the cave in the light of flashlights – exhausted, but overjoyed. The divers had penetrated the cave for more than three kilometers. Teenagers in Thailand included in cave; Flash flood surprised soccer team June 24: The twelve boys between the ages of eleven and sixteen and their 25-year-old football coach entered training at the Tham Luang-Khun Nam Nang Non Cave in Chiang Raim Province some 1,000 kilometers north of Bangkok on June 23. In the region at the 20th northern latitude is now rainy season. According to authorities, the group had been surprised by a flash flood and He had saved himself deeper and deeper into the cave before the rising water , Details on the course were still unclear. The parents of the missing had spent days in front of the cave. The rescuers got further into the cave, but came to a bend, where the cave path divided in two directions. The condition of the adolescents and their trainer were unclear at this time. Soccer team in Thailand included in cave © – / kyodo / dpa dpa / AFP Merkur.de is part of the Ippen Digital Network.
