The world celebrates the rescue of 12 children and a soccer coach who were trapped in a cave from the 23rd of June. 19 divers international experts participated and even one of them, named Saman Kunan, died during the work.
But a parallel history which competed with the follow-up to the rescue was the offer by Elon Musk to create a submarine that would serve to rescue the children trapped. The american tycoon would be the specialists of his company SpaceX to work in the design and manufacture of the device to have it ready and send it to Thailand as soon as possible.
The founder of Tesla even spread several videos on his Twitter account in which we see their technicians testing the submarine.

Apparently the submarine was not ready on time, and although there were reports that Musk already went to Thailand with the device, there was no need for it. However, Elon would have insisted on transport and take it to the zone in case that it might “be useful in the future.”
The bad news for Musk and his team is that the manager of the rescue operations, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said that the technology developed SpaceX was inadequate, as reported by BBC. “Although the technology Musk is good and sophisticated, it is not practical for this mission.” Even so, the office of the Prime Minister of Thailand thanked for the help offered by the american entrepreneur and his company.

What opportunist or philanthropist?
Despite the efforts of Elon Musk to join the heroic rescue of the children trapped in the flooded cave of Tham Luang Nang Non, now the visionary he is accusing you of opportunistic and social networks have not missed the opportunity to mock his campaign.
A report by the Spanish newspaper ABC compiles the recent critical against Musk and also recounts the reply of the owner of Tesla to the report of the BBC, to which it points is inaccurate.
The “judges” of the social networks have already come and criticize the initiative of Musk. You here in unocero, what do you think?

Freaking out with the community of Twitter. A guy (Elon Musk) is to provide assistance to the rescue of a group of people and here the people were laughing at that nothing came of it, and reinforce that he did the ridiculous.
Twitter is like a retiree who looks at a piece, but full of hatred and misanthropy.

I have the impression that the hatred and contempt to Elon Musk as an inventor and innovator is a phenomenon that is distinctly Spanish, when in the USA the that you look over the shoulder are generally oligarchs and for economic reasons.
