    Vaughn thanks a ton for posting that. I have been trying to explain to loml how deep the blow out preventer is and could not get through to her.

    She keeps on saying why not send a diver down and just sort it out.

    I showed her it now she gets it. And her Dad used to be a an atmospheric diver with the bell helmet and all.


    On the aspect of the drilling rig i made the point to loml that when we have gone into space so far most of the time we as humans have been able to get up close to work on things with our hands such as when guys go out and use somewhat ordinary tools to assemble or repair pieces of the space station.

    But to be doing it down at these depths with robots.
    cheers
