Holy crap. Here are some photos of the Deep Horizon drilling rig just before it sank to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and caused a massive oil leak that is destroying the Gulf Coast at the moment. The photos were taken by an unnamed DOE contractor aboard one of the ships that came to aid the fire/explosion on Deep Horizon.

Don’t these photos (and the many more like it) look like special effect scenes in a movie? Incredible yet sad. :(
