9-12: Plotting a Rescue Mission
In order to rescue the miners, a special shuttle created by NASA was used to bring the miners to the surface. This rescue mission took very precise attention to detail because many lives were at stake.

Break up into small groups and come up with a rescue plan of your own. Remember to keep in mind the geographical conditions of the area, the dangers of the miners being underground, and other characteristics that create the hazardous circumstances for the rescue mission. What kind of equipment would you need? What kind of professionals would you want to be involved in this mission?
