One of the cable stations is following it live so I'm watching it on TV - the first rescuer has just gotten into the capsule, and they're getting it ready to lower.

I was thrilled they interrupted the tv show to announce this! It's such an achievement, not only that they survived, but that they can be rescued!

Did they show the arrival of the second miner, Mario Sepulveda? He brought along a bag of rocks for several people; the very hard pyrite-bearing ones that caused so much trouble for the drilling out of the hole (but at least with any luck will keep it open for the entire procedure.

That's good news. Up until this event, being trapped so far underground amounted to a death sentence.

Good one on the Chileans!

And a lot of the rest of the world, too, including NASA. I just wish we'd all get together this amicably the rest of the time...

Oh well - everybody's out!
