33

It’s a great day to be Chilean.

It’s certainly true that the 33 miners rescued from the depths of the earth are heroes. Anyone who can survive over two months trapped in that pit of hell must be considered nothing less.

But as CBC’s National Science Commentator Bob McDonald pointed out, the other heroes are the engineers who designed the miraculous escape capsule which pulled all the trapped men to safety, with no major problems, and ahead of schedule.

We are all engineers; engineers of communication.

May all your engineering projects end as beautifully as the one in Chile.
