WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History is opening an exhibit about the rescue of 33 Chilean miners who spent more than two months trapped underground in 2010.

The exhibit, "Against All Odds," opens Friday. The exhibition includes one of the rescue capsules used to bring the miners to safety, new video footage, mementos and personal stories from the miners.

Friday marks one year since the mine collapsed. The miners were rescued 69 days later.
