they need to fill the hole down to 3000 ft. below sea bottom and cement has to set. We won't know if it works for several days. We will know if they need to stop sooner because of dangerous buildup of gas and pressure before the plug can set. It's a alot more complicated than anyone here or on the news knows.
I do not why they do not know? And whine, and whine:' Mommy, is it over yet? Are we there yet?' As I said: there are hundreds of sources telling us how it is supposed to work, that it will take a day or two--and sttill, every 2 seconds the same childish question/statement comes in:It will not work; When will it work, etc. Incidently, the video is fascinating. It is a horribly high price to pay for a little bit of knowledge, however..
