Innovation Helped Rescue the Miners

This whole aspect of the store (except for the drilling technology) escaped me during the rescue episode. See Daniel Henninger’s article in the Wall Street Journal.  New and innovative technology and products from around the world saved the miners:

  • Center Rock drill from Center Rock Inc (Berlin, Pennsylvania, USA)
  • Drill Rig from Schramm Inc. (West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA)
  • Samsung (Japan) cell phones
  • Socks with copper fiber to consume bacteria and minimise oder and infection (Virginia, USA)
  • Fibre Optic cables (Japan)
  • Sunglasses (California)
  • …. plus so much more

We should learn from this, which is the point of the WSJ article.
