By tomorrow morning, all of the 33 miners who've been trapped for nearly 10 weeks in a Chilean mine are expected to be on the surface. The first dozen to be rescued were reunited with family members overnight and this morning. The rescue capsule hasn't been rotating as much as officials had expected, so the rescues are taking place at a faster pace -- about one every 40 minutes.

The miners have been trapped since August 5th.
