I don't know why, but this plan makes me more nervous and anxious about the outcome than a moon mission.

I've been worried about those dogs since I first heard they were stranded and they were doing food and water drops for them. I really hope they can be rescued.

Oh also I'm just waiting for Elon Musk to announce his plan to get the dogs.

Wait til they get the bill.

Until the battery fails on the last dog and we end up with Dog Vader.

It would be cheaper to buy new dogs.

Who, who, who, who who'll get the dogs out?

Drew and admins,
Please, if there is a follow up on this story be sure to green it.
I know I'm not the only one keeping fingers crossed that the dogs make it out alive.

Why buns come in packs of eight but hot dogs get trapped in volcanoes?

One the last one?  You're optimistic.

CNN had an article that said that they had to be able to net the dog within 4 minutes, as the drone only had an 8 minute battery.

I *hope* that was 8 minutes when carrying the load of the dog, so they actually have a little more time ... because that is some horrible drone design if it only has an 8 minute battery

I wonder how many more pets are / were trapped inside houses by owners who evacuated in a hurry.

"Volcanos eruptions are like cats":

* Wreck the furniture
* Piss + poop on everything
* Show up unannounced
* Annoying to non-volcano people
* Up all night, sleep in the day
* Like to break stuff
* Know you won't do anything to them
* Roar when they are in heat
* Get litter all over the house
* Will unexpectedly produce offspring
* Act like they own the place.
* Lots of YouTube videos.

I saw this yesterday and they said they'll have 8 minutes of battery time to catch each dog if everything else goes well.  The dogs look very thin so hopefully they'll just step into the net and be whisked away.

Yeah naw, it's Euroland, they don't work that way.
Stiggin' it is a 'Murican concept.

Of course brighter minds closer to the scene than I have considered this, and a net seems the best way. I wonder about the viability of dropping a crate with a remote door, baited with food for later pickup?

Regardless, I am on the edge of my seat for these poor pups. I'll be super impressed if the company can even get two of the dogs out safely.

Are you saying the dogs are farked? 😬

I thought the headline was a joke at Musk's expense, but they really are trying to fly them out with drones.

I really hope they can save the dogs. Send them to me if they don't have a home anymore
 
2021-10-21 9:18:25 AM  
Will the drones grip the dogs by the husk?

You just have to make sure you don't lose one in the process. Otherwise, it'll be a ...

They're talking about nets to trap the dogs and frankly it sounds like it's going to go about as well as you can expect.

Who let the dogs out?  The A Team.
