On Nat Radio Checkpoint last night Marie Wilson spoke to John Urosek at the US Mine Safety and Health administration about their robot.
He stated that it has previously been used with a 3000ft fibre-optic control cable (just under 1 km), which would only reach halfway down the entrance tunnel at Pike River.
