A big thanks to NASA for helping get the Chilean miners to safety

I noticed that NASA Administrator Charles Bolden issued a statement at 10:44 this morning on the rescue effort for the Chilean miners, but no major website has posted his comments.

Sooooo here it is in its’ entirety!

“On behalf of the entire NASA family, I want to ask that our heartfelt thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the courageous miners, their families and friends, and the dedicated people who have been working to safely reach those who are still trapped underground.

“There is a lot of hard work ahead for rescuers, but the Chilean government and the people of that great nation should be praised for their steadfast determination. Their unwavering commitment is the reason we are witness to the joyful and emotional reunions today as the miners are returned to the surface one-by-one.

“I also want to express my personal thanks to the Americans who have assisted in this heroic effort, and specifically the NASA team that traveled to Chile in the early days of the crisis. For decades, the people of this agency have learned to live, work, and survive in the hostile environment of space. Our expertise in maintaining physiological and psychological health, and our technical and engineering experience in spacecraft design all proved to be valuable in a situation that is far from our traditional scope of work.

“I am proud of the people of this agency who were able to bring the experience of spaceflight down to Earth when it was needed most. As the drama of this recue continues to unfold before us, we pray for the safe return of each and every miner.”

NASA played a BIG role in helping get these men to safety. DISCOVERY and UNIVERSE TODAY have interviews about NASA’s efforts and details some of the ‘tech used in this crisis.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Science Rocks.
