In August 2010, the entire world watched a drama unfold in northern Chile. Thirty-three men were entombed half-a-mile underground when the San Jose copper mine collapsed. A rock the size of a skyscraper had sheared off the mountain above and blocked the miners’ access to the surface. After seventeen days — as hopes for their survival began to dim — the men were discovered alive.
