Mr Musk's companies could assist by trying to pinpoint the boys' precise location using Space Exploration Technologies or Boring technology, pumping water or providing heavy-duty battery packs known as Tesla Powerwalls, a spokesman for Mr Musk said earlier.
"As moremonsoon rains are expected, Thai authorities say the 12 boys stranded inside a cave and their coach will not be imminently rescued because they do not want to risk the boys" lives. Musk said based on "feedback from Thailand", the engineers made a decision to build a "tiny, kid-size submarine" using a large silver tube meant to be affixed to a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
He added: "Maybe worth trying: insert a 1m diameter nylon tube (or shorter set of tubes for most hard sections) through cave network & inflate with air like a bouncy castle".
It all started with a plea from a random Twitter user.
The amount of oxygen in the cave is diminishing, forcing rescuers to establish a line to pump in fresh air.
While the oxygen level had stabilised, he warned levels of "carbon dioxide are another factor" in considering when to move the group - in addition to impending rains which could cover much of the muddy ledge on which the group are sheltering. They entered the cave during fine weather but became trapped when a sudden downpour flooded the narrow tunnels.
It is not clear whether Musk's solution will be seriously considered or whether it would work better than the methods already being explored by rescuers.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, the governor of the Chiang Rai region, where the cave is situated, said the boys had enough strength to walk but could not swim to safety. Musk indicated on Wednesday that he might be able to help with this effort.
Then he posited several ideas including offering Boring Co. resources for "ground penetrating radar" and by providing fully charged Powerpacks and pumps.
