British diver Vern Unsworth called Elon Musk’s submarine rescue plan a “PR stunt.” He did not hold back, saying that Musk can “stick his submarine where it hurts.”
In an interview with CNN, Unsworth described Musk’s mini submarine as useless and as nothing more than a grab for attention.
He also said the billionaire was asked to leave the cave.
“It just had absolutely no chance of working. He had no conception of what the cave passage was like. The submarine, I believe, was about 5-foot-6 long, rigid, so it wouldn’t have gone round corners or round any obstacles,” Unsworth said.
“It wouldn’t have made the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point. It was just a PR stunt.”
