We have known that there has been a major incident which concerned the entire world coming out of Thailand. This is regarding the reports that came out of the country that an entire Football team of 12 players and their coach went missing. Later, the Thailand rescue team found the players as well as the coach all alive.
But, the problem is that they are still not out in the open because they are stuck in a cave which is very hard to go inside. Therefore, many countries around the world have offered their help regarding the rescue.
Also, Thailand has been trying its level best to rescue these kids as well. Now, one good news that is coming for this rescue mission to be boosted is a statement from Elon Musk. Elon has said that the SpaceX team is working on a mini kid-sized submarine which will be deployed specifically to rescue the Thailand Football Team players and coach.
Some good feedback from cave experts in Thailand. Iterating with them on an escape pod design that might be safe enough to try. Also building an inflatable tube with airlocks. Less likely to work, given tricky contours, but great if it does.

Talking about the Thailand Football Team and their players, it is known that they have been trapped inside the cave from June 23. They were on an exploration trip to the cave when suddenly the flood waters got to a level where they couldn’t come out anymore. Since then, the 12 kids and their coach are stuck in the cave, understandably without food or water.
Talking about the submarine from SpaceX, Elon Musk also tweeted that the submarine will be built in next 8 hours and then sent to Thailand which will be a 17-hour long flight. Also, Elon tweeted that SpaceX and Boring Company engineers will also be going to the Thailand Rescue site to see how they can help in this mission.
