Fox News explains the rescue capsule that ferried the trapped Chilean miners to the surface:

On Monday, the Phoenix I capsule -- the biggest of three built by Chilean navy engineers -- made its first test runs. Named after the mythic bird that rose from its ashes, the Phoenix capsule is designed to ferry the men one at a time up a narrow shaft lined with steel pipe. Chilean mining minister Laurence Golborne said the capsule weighs 924 pounds  (420 kilograms) and its interior height is 6 feet, 4 inches (1.9 meters).

The empty capsule is lowered via a winch 2,000 feet (610 meters) into the mine, just 40 feet (12 meters) short of the shaft bottom that has been the miners' refuge since the August 5 collapse. The men will each take an individual, twisting 20-minute ride back to the surface. It should take about an hour for the rescue capsule to make a round trip, Chilean deputy mining minister Rene Aguilar told The Associated Press.
