^ yes.

The whole ordeal was pretty insane. The process, the options considered and what has been done is pretty insane too. Glad it all worked out. +1 on the green light to sleep with the lights on.

Yeah, pretty sad. At least he was doing what he loved/was best at. Seemed all those divers were working st the very edge of their abilities.

Was making your lame snarky comment a big thing that made your tiny day?

I posted it because I thought it was interesting and the subject was already being discussed.

Most are just glad. Some are presumably just as glad but their ego has voice as well.

Elon Musk queries expertise of Thai cave rescue officials
Elon Musk has questioned the expertise of Thai rescue officials who turned down his offer of a submarine, despite their having organised the successful rescue of all 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave.

The entrepreneur had offered his help and posted footage of tests being carried out on the apparatus he proposed in recent days.

But while Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command centre co-ordinating the operation, acknowledged Musk’s offer he said that the mini submarine would not have been practical for the cave rescue.

“Even though their equipment is technologically sophisticated, it doesn’t fit with our mission to go in the cave,” Osatanakorn told reporters.

In response, Musk said Osatanakorn was “not the subject matter expert”, adding that he believed he had been “inaccurately described as rescue chief”, and should be more accurately referred to as the “former Thai provincial governor”.

Osatanakorn stepped down as the governor of Chiang Rai during the rescue operation, but remained its commander.

Musk posted an image of his email correspondence with Dick Stanton, the British diver who first made contact with the football squad and their coach, in which Stanton asked the inventor to keep working on a project that could potentially bear fruit.

“Moreover, based on extensive cave video review and discussion with several divers who know journey, SpaceX engineering is absolutely certain that mini-sub can do entire journey & demonstrate at any time,” Musk added.

Musk congratulated the team who carried out the operation, which concluded successfully on Tuesday afternoon. “Great news that they made it out safely. Congratulations to an outstanding rescue team.”
