Against All Odds: Rescue at the Chilean Mine

August 5, 2011 – September 30, 2012

Museum: Natural History Museum

Location: 2nd Floor, East Wing, Geology, Gems, and Minerals

During the autumn of 2010, the world watched as rescuers in Chile ferried 33 miners to safety after nearly two months trapped in a collapsed mine. One of the capsules used for testing the rescue shaft, new video footage, mementos from the miners, and rock samples from the mine re-create the scene of this dramatic event and reveal the complex rescue effort and the miners’ story.
