Elon Musk has an Idea for Saving Boys Stranded in a Thailand Cave

Elon Musk thinks some of his SpaceX and Boring Company engineers might be able to help the Thai government rescue the boys that have been stuck in a flooded cave for the last two weeks. Since the Boring Company is all about boring holes underground it makes sense to send them and their ground penetrating radar to Thailand to find a possible spot to begin tunneling to the trapped youths. All I can say is I hope his company can provide significant help in the rescue efforts. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

But this discovery didn't mean the boys were out of danger. Continued rains could flood the part of the cave where they're stranded. And even if that doesn't happen, it could be months before the water drops enough for the boys to walk out. In their current situation, keeping the boys supplied with food and medical care is hazardous—one Thai navy diver has died ferrying oxygen tanks into the cave.
