Mr Musk travelled to the Tham Luang caverns in Chiang Rai this week and presented the six-foot submarine - which he said could help free 12 schoolboys stranded for weeks inside the cave.

"It just had absolutely no chance of working", Unsworth said in a widely shared interview.

"He (Mr Musk) had no conception of what the cave passage was like". The submarine was reportedly 5 feet and 6 inches long, small enough to carry one of the boys but likely rigid and obtuse in the tight, murky dimensions of the cave network. "It wouldn't have made the first fifty meters into the cave". "It was just a PR stunt".

"And was asked to leave very quickly".

"And so he should have been".

Elon Musk is not taking criticism of his submersible that was designed with the hopes of saving the Thai schoolboy football team and their coach from a flooded cave.

'Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great.

Musk further questioned the allegation of a PR stunt, saying he had repeatedly declined to help until the death of former Royal Thai Navy special operations diver Saman Gunan in the cave. The SpaceX founder claimed he never saw Unsworth when he visited the caves and appeared to cast suspicion about the fact that he lives in Thailand, a country known for its high rates of child prostitution. If not true, then I challenge this dude to show final rescue video. Huge credit to pump & generator team.

Trump says Obama failed to stop Russian hacking in 2016 election
Speaking in Britain before the indictments were unveiled, Trump said he would ask Putin about the allegations of election meddling.

"We will make [a video] of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

He was involved in the rescue for the whole 17 days.

Mr Unsworth was part of an global team of cave-diving experts who rescued the group of 12 teenage boys and their coach last week.

The Tesla CEO had traveled to Thailand earlier this week, touting his "mini-sub" that he said was built with rocket parts and could be carried by two divers.

Meanwhile the two Australians who helped in the worldwide rescue of the Wild Boars soccer team were given diplomatic immunity in the event anything went wrong during the treacherous rescue.

Musk's Sunday tweets came in response to a New York Times opinion piece entitled "What Elon Musk Should Learn From the Thailand Cave Rescue".

"Although his technology is good and sophisticated it's not practical for this mission", Mr Narongsak said. He hit back at his critics this week, saying the dive team had instructed him to keep working on the submarine.
