All of you must have heard a lot about the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Things are worsening with each passing day and now the spill is likely to reach the Louisiana’s coastline. It has been noted that nearly 1,000 barrels are discharging into the ocean every day over a span of 28,600 square miles. In an attempt to control the unwanted situation , BP engineers have come forward with their ingenious design.
The engineers working on designing and developing a giant underwater dome that could be placed over the leak to suck up the oil. Though the idea of the dome has been tried since 1979, but it never tastes success. The harsh seas did not let it sustain for more than two months. So, all we can do is hope that BP’s underwater dome succeeded in withstanding the cruel sea and stops the gusher from reaching the coastline.
