NASA Experts Assist in Chilean Miners' s Survival and Rescue
On Aug. 31, a NASA team of experts arrived in Santiago for about a week
as part of NASA's commitment to provide U.S. assistance. NASA's assistance
was only a small contribution to the Chilean government's overall rescue effort.
The NASA team included two medical doctors, a psychologist and an
engineer. Dr. Michael Duncan, deputy chief medical officer in NASA's
Space Life Sciences Directorate at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston,
led the team. The other team members are physician J.D. Polk,
psychologist Al Holland and engineer Clint Cragg.
