I just got an text message from a relative doing support work on a ship controlling one of the remote subs attempting to position the oil collection "dome" over the major leak in the "riser"
Exact quote "the eagle has landed" A bit cryptic I'll grant you but I believe the oil collection dome is now in place.
Keep your fingers crossed.
More to follow.
Confirmed: Box to contain oil leak touches down on Gulf floor
Back to bad news: BP Suffers Setback on Containment Dome Just damn.
