Well, I am going to try to endure CNN for a few hours because I want to see this event unfold. It will be a momentous event and I am sure to become emotional.

I watched the live feed

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/39632101#39632101

from midnight to 3:00am in Spain. That was two hours before the first miner came to the surface. I can remember the moon landing and the Apollo 13 rescue and the sensation is the same!

Great professionals in the rescue teams. You see US, Canadian and German flags flying at the site amongst others.

yes, and it seems that he is a national sports figure also.

Anyone else mesmerized by all of this? I have been noting that they are getting very proficient at the procedures as they have developed confidence in the rescue process.

They are loading the last miner in the capsule as I am watchng now at 8:45 PM EDT.

They are reporting 5 or 6 rescue workers still in the mine so they obviously will come out last.

The last one has been out for 15 minutes.
The Presendente is giving a long speech,
can someone give a translation summary.

I understand about 30 words, think he is blessing out the mining companies. I understand he has locked down the finances of that company.

This is great news!! Savor the moment, 'cause there isn't much in the news these days to make you feel good. God bless these guys. I hope they have wonderful lives after this; they've earned it.

The camera man just got in the capsule and made some jokes about leaving the last rescuer behind.

One go go.

I kinda thought of that too...they shut off the lights and it's "ok boys, we're outta here" lol. But seriously, prayers need to be said for the rescuers as well. It takes some mighty big balls to strap up and put yourself in that posistion.
