I suppose a good many successful operations, rescue and otherwise, develop tawdry sideshows that detract from their main purpose. This i certainly the case here, with Elon Musk labeling (libeling?) the british cave diver who located the stranded soccer players a "ped," in response to the diver's opinion that Musk's rescue capsule would not have been effective in the rescue operation.

After seeing a photo of the capsule being tested in a swimming pool, I am confident the diver's opinion is correct. In caves, flooded or not, flexibility is important, like so many things in life.

Sad to see this besmirching development....
