Elon Musk designs escape pod for soccer team trapped in Thai cave

Just days after Elon Musk sent members of the Boring Company and SpaceX teams to Thailand to assist with rescuing 12 boys and their coach stuck in a cave, the CEO recently posted his "kid-sized submarine" tasked with evacuating the kids.
The team was found by a pair of British volunteer divers, 10 days after they entered the cave.
Musk began his Saturday updates by discussing an "escape pod design" and "an inflatable tube with airlocks".
A team of engineers from Space-X and The Boring Company are on their way to Thailand.
The billionaire offered support after Twitter users asked him if there was anything he could do.
"Continue to be amazed by the bravery, resilience & tenacity of kids & diving team in Thailand", Musk said in another tweet. Light enough to be carried by two divers, small enough to get through narrow gaps.
Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers chose to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. "Extremely robust", he tweeted Saturday. Time is of the essence since more flooding rains are expected over the weekend, and oxygen in the caves may be running low. Numerous passageways leading into the cave are narrow, and most of the boys do not know how to swim.
Mr Musk's companies could help by trying to locate the boys' precise location using Space Exploration Technologies Corp or Boring Co technology, pumping water or providing heavy-duty battery packs known as Tesla Inc Powerwalls, the spokesman said. It would still be a harrowing and claustrophobic experience, but-if everything works as Musk describes-it could be much less risky than conventional scuba diving, where a panicking teenager could lead to the death of the teen himself as well as his professional scuba guides.
Musk's team will be heading to the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex in Thailand tomorrow.
