No, the Oil Gusher has NOT Been Stopped Yet … But There Still May Be Some Good News

Contrary to widespread reports that the oil gusher has been stopped, the live feed below from ROV 2’s BSkandi camera shows that it is still gushing out of the pipe which has been connected to the new containment cap:

It is still encouraging that the cap seems to have a better fit as far as what I can see on the underwater cams. If the system of pipes, cap and well can handle the pressure – BP may be able to connect the pipe all the way up to the collection vessel at the surface.

Updates as they arise …
