The reason why Elon Musk's idea for Thai Rescue mission was rejected
The Thai Cave Rescue mission is complete with all boys rescued. Many people came up with their expertise and solution to help save the trapped kids from this sticky situation.
One of the first volunteer support was Elon Musk. One of his first suggestions was to have a ‘castle’ like nylon tube in which air would be inflated along the cave network so the children could walk out. The tech billionaire scientist also sent his team of engineers to the spot to analyse the situation and come up with any feasible solutions any.
Pertaining to this, Elon Musk had ideated on a small submarine ‘pod’ which would be small enough to wade through the cave waters at the same time carrying the boys. However, the Head of the rescue mission has stated that his idea was not practical for the mission.
Elon Musk had left the pod in the spot stating that they might use it in the future if need arises. Anyways Musk’s immediate and continuous support during the mission was appreciated.
