Remember the miners in Chile that were trapped underground on August 5th? They’re still down there. Rescue workers continue to dig toward them while sending essential supplies down a 3.19 inch hole. Newsweek has an infographic illustrating what has been sent down and up this tiny access space. These items include water, an iPod, a tiny projector for entertainment, and blood and urine samples.  The miners have requested cigarettes and alcohol. Their request was denied

Newsweek has a fascinating short feature on the trapped Chilean miners, who despite being discovered weeks ago may not be freed until December.
