Late at night on Aug. 13, all 33 miners trapped in a Chilean mine were rescued without incident.

There is a lot more to this story than a dramatic rescue, though.

The rescue ended “the largest underground entrapment in human history,” according to MSNBC’s online publication.

All miners resurfaced within a 24 hour period after the first was rescued, well ahead of the projected time for completion.
