Chilean Miner Rescue Video Feed--UPDATE II

UPDATE II:  Capsule down the hole!   Vaya con Dios, Amigos!

CBS News.
UPDATED:  Malkin has more, including
  • Link to WSJ Video Feed
  • Link to description of NASA's contributions.
  • Bio of Americans who dropped everything to fly to Chile to work 33 days straight to make the rescue possible--2 and a half months earlier than the original predictions, you may recall.
I was wondering about decompression, thinking that they might be deep enough to worry about the bends.  Apparently not, although there are similar concerns, which is where NASA comes in.
LOL!  One of the rescue crew just had to go turn off the security alarm on his car...

We stayed up and watched the fourth guy get packed-in and go up, on Tele-Something Spanishvision - there was no live feed at 11:00 last night except one Spanish-language station and a Tokyo (WTF?).
Apparently an American named Jeff Heart from Colorado drilled the hole.
But the Google map is to San Jose, CA, they can't find Chile...
But Wikipedia can:

But the big question is, how come our guys always die whenever there's a mine disaster here - and yet these guys pulled-off an amazing (and calm) rescue? Is the US becoming a 2nd Class mining country?
