I was glued to the TV last night as the first Chilean miner was pulled to the surface - and resumed watching early this morning as the 11th miner was freed. My heart sunk when the initial projected estimate for rescuing the miners was still months away. The strength, courage and endurance that each exhibited is beyond imaginable.
The New York Times has a great interactive report of the miners (including bios) already rescued and those yet awaiting their turn in the capsule. It's nice to put faces to the stories.
