Missing data causing rig reconstruction mystery


news.yahoo.com

While some data were being transmitted to shore for safekeeping right up until the April 20 blast, officials from Transocean, the rig owner, told Congress that the last seven hours of its data are missing and that all written logs were lost in the explosion.

...

In the hours leading up to the explosion, workers finished pumping cement into the exploratory well to bolster and seal it against leaks until a later production phase. After the tests that indicated leakage, workers debated the next step and eventually decided to resume work, for reasons that remain unclear.

How convenient is it for the parties involved, that the "black box" is either destroyed completely, or at the bottom of the ocean?

I hope they find some way to make heads roll for this mess, but something tells me that it won't happen. It's a sad day we're living in and something has to change or we're through on this planet.
