Top kill has failed . As BP moves on to whatever it is they plan to do next, we’re learning executives knew there were “serious problems and safety concerns” with the rig as early as 11 months ago, and did nothing.

Oh hey! After weeks of halfbaked attempts and botched efforts, yesterday’s top kill procedure has stopped the flow of oil into the Gulf, according to the Coast Guard. Soon engineers will start pumping cement into the well, which will hopefully allow them to seal it permanently.

BP will attempt to shut down the oil well that’s been spewing into the Gulf of Mexico later today. Step one: the “top-kill” method, wherein heavy drilling mud is forced deep into the well. Let’s pray it works

As BP continues to come up with schemes to slow the Gulf oil spill, new research by NPR suggests that the leak could be far worse than previously thought. Applying particle image velocimetry—basically a computer program that measures the oil geyser particle by particle—to videos of the underwater leak , researchers concluded that the amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico could be 10 times as great as previously estimated—that’s 70,000 barrels a day, as opposed to 5,000. BP bases their estimates on surface measurements, saying there’s no way to accurately gauge how much the flow coming out of the pipe, but they would say that. [ NPR ] More
