APR: your source for nuclear news and analysis since April 16, 2010

Thursday, June 3, 2010

Nuke the Deepwater Horizon drill site? Oh, come on..

I won't link the sites, but several supposedly reputable news sources (and several parroting news organizations) have now written speculative articles about using a nuclear device (that's a weapon, folks) to seal off the Gulf oil leak site.

Admiral Mullen already said something to the effect of that being way, way, way down the road. Or further. Essentially, that's a "no." Anyone who is wondering now why not should go look up the details on Project Gnome, as just one example.

Meanwhile, ROV video seems to indicate that BP is getting much closer to making its first attempt to cap the well. Video stream here.
