Moving the Chilean Miners’ rescue capsule from Point A to Point B – that’s it! Or is that all that’s really involved?
FedEx Express was selected a few months ago by the Chilean Copper Corporation (CODELCO) and the Ministry of Mining for the Republic of Chile as the Official Carrier of the Fénix capsule used to rescue miners trapped in the San Jose mine last year.We took on the responsibility to move the capsule, all 14 feet and 800 pounds of it to Canada, Germany and Washington, D.C. – where it is getting ready to be displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History beginning Friday in an exhibition titled “Against All Odds”.
