Against All Odds: Rescue at the Chilean Mine

August 5, 2011 – September 30, 2012 (new closing date)

Museum: Natural History Museum

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

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.
