Chiliean Miners Rescued

Recommended Posts

The fact they survived 69 days with the first 17 days with no contact to the outside world is quite amazing :|

 

As always, Wikipedia has all the details:

:P

 

It's quite a great story. In a somewhat related news, Steve Jobs is sending them all free iPods, lol.

Which is kind of funny because

1. Do they have computers?

2. Should have sent them when they were stuck down there... lol.
