One miner at at time, one hour per miner.

Thirty-three hours: the flight

of the Spirit from coast to coast.

by Therese L. Broderick

NOTE: A recent news report estimated that the rescue of 33 Chilean miners might take one hour per miner. What else in history has taken 33 hours? Lindbergh’s oceanic flight in the Spirit took 33 hours, 30 minutes, 29.8 seconds.
