I do have a question....about the suggestion by Russian petro-engineers to try stopping the outflow by detonating a small nuclear device to seal the well.
Well.... using the nuke is sort of pointless in the current situation for several reasons.
1. The surface layers of the ocean floor are not heavy enough to stop the oil from coming to the surface.
2. You would have to drill a several mile deep tunnel, very close to the original well, deep enough to be within SOLID earth.
3. IF you are drilling THAT DEEP, and THAT CLOSE to the original well, you are already doing the "Bottom Kill" thing anyways...
So, it's sort of redundant.
