BP announced today that their newest well cap, installed yesterday afternoon, is working (so far). For the first time in 87 days, there was no oil leaking into the Gulf.
The New York Times stated:
"...the view on Thursday afternoon was eerily tranquil, just the slate blue of the deep interspersed with small white particles floating across the screen. Though the exact amount of the oil that has poured out of the well may never be known, it was suddenly and for the first time a fixed amount. The disaster was, for a little while at least, finite."
