Expert Cave Diver Tells Elon Musk That His Submarine Sucked

Elon Musk went on a weird rant against a British diver involved in last week's Thai cave rescue after the diver mocked the billionaire tech entrepreneur's proposed plan to help with the mission.

Vern Unsworth - who was on the global team of specialist cave divers at the scene - had told CNN that he thought the mini-submarine the Tesla chief sent to help with the rescue was a useless grab for attention. "It just has absolutely no chance of working". It wouldn't have made the first fifty metres into the cave from the dive start point.

"Mr Musk's desire to help was commendable", she wrote.

In a separate Twitter thread over the weekend, Musk defended his almost $40,000 donation to PAC Protect The House, a political action committee that aims to preserve Republican control of the House of Representatives.

The chief of the rescue operation also said that Musk's submarine was "not practical" for the mission. Angered by how the alleged publicity stunt distracted from strategies that he felt prioritized the children's dwindling time, Unsworth went so far to say that Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts".

"He had no conception of what the cave passage was like".

Democrats, meanwhile, slammed the Republicans for their attacks on Strzok as an effort to undermine the Mueller investigation. In August 2016, Strzok responded to a message from Page about Trump's chance of being elected president.

Instead, the Silicon Valley mogul stuck to his original comment, tweeting "Bet ya a signed dollar it's true" to someone who called him out for the remark, while also saying he never saw Unsworth when he was at the cave. "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

Unsworth initially pinpointed where he thought the boys would be in the trapped cave.

He was involved in the rescue for the whole 17 days.

Musk's Sunday tweets came in response to a New York Times opinion piece entitled "What Elon Musk Should Learn From the Thailand Cave Rescue".

"Just returned from Cave 3".

Musk deleted his tweets a few hours later. "We designed the mini-sub to Stanton's specifications *and* brought a flexible rescue pod just in case". It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids' soccer team. "If it isn't needed, that would be great to know".
