At the depth which the relief well intersect will be, setting off a nuke would barely be noticeable at the sea floor. I don't think you'd even have
a ripple at the surface of the gulf waters.
But it would absolutely 100% end this nightmare.
It would seal off the leak permanently.
It should have already been done, they only need to get close with the relief well drill, then shove the nuke in, BOOM and it's over.
The radiation and the leak will be contained deep underground.
It would have been the best solution, but just watch... BP will find a way to tap this well for oil production without sealing it off.
Too much time and money invested in it now to give up on it completely.
