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.
