Favourite 11 responses to Elon Musk not being able to help the Thai cave rescue

Space littering tech billionaire Elon Musk turned up at the Thai cave rescue with his super mini submarine but it turned out to be no use whatsoever.

Here’s what the head of the rescue mission had to say.

“The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission. Even though their equipment is technologically sophisticated, it doesn’t fit with our mission to go in the cave.”

But he left it behind anyway just in case, you know, it turned out they needed it after all. (They didn’t).

And there was something about the gesture that caught people’s imagination. Not in a good way, though.
