Elon Musk Calls The Thai Cave Rescuer a \

After days of a dramatic odyssey to save the Thai football team members from a cave, Elon Musk, the founder & CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, sparked controversy by referring the British diver, Vern Unsworth as a “pedo.”

The diver was a part of the highly trained professional team that assisted in the rescue operation. Musk didn’t stop there and followed his tweet by another post, “bet ya a signed dollar it’s true.”

The blazing tweets were the result of an interview which the diver, Vern Unsworth, gave to CNN International on last Friday. Unsworth cited the small submarine built by SpaceX engineers as a “PR stunt.”

After the news of Thai boys erupted, Musk came forward to lend a hand in the dangerous rescue operation. Space X designed a small submarine for the same and it was designed to guide through the Tham Luang cave complex and to navigate the treacherous escape route of more than four kilometers of twisting and narrow passageways. Unsworth stated the submarine as unworthy and said, “had absolutely no chance of working.”

Unworth further said, “had no conception of what the cave passage was like. The submarine, I believe, was about 5 foot 6 long, rigid, so it wouldn’t have gone around corners or around any obstacles. It wouldn’t have made the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point.”

On mentioning the presence of Musk in the cave, Unsworth said he was “asked to leave very quickly. And so he should have been.”

Before this mudslinging, Musk was caught in the exchange of words with Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the rescue mission and led the joint command center coordinating the operation. After the successful rescue mission of rescuing kids, Narongsak told the reporters, “although [Musk’s] technology is good and sophisticated it’s not practical for this mission.”

To this remarks, Musk jumped back and said Ostanakorn was “described inaccurately as ‘rescue chief' ” and “is not the subject matter expert.”

Thai divers along with foreign divers launched a daring and dangerous mission after fourteen days of the disappearance of the kids, which also claimed the life of a Thai Navy seal. Furthermore, the rescue mission became more challenging due to the monsoon season, which resulted in the continuous supply of water in the Thai cave.
