The world has been watching with bated breath as rescue operations are underway to save a youth soccer team that is trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand. In the past day, many of the 12 boys have been saved, but that hasn’t stopped Elon Musk’s team of engineers from SpaceX and Boring Co. from developing a mini-submarine that could save the trapped kids.

The engineers transformed a liquid oxygen transfer tube from a SpaceX Falcon rocket into a submarine. The transport is small enough to fit in the tight cave gaps and light enough to be carried by two divers. The kid-size submarine is big enough for one person to fit inside with their arms crossed. Musk shared photos and video of the sub being tested out in Los Angeles. The video shows the escape pod in a pool and a person popping out of the vessel completely dry.
