On April 21st 2010, the Deepwater Horizon semi-submersible Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU), situated about 40 miles southeast of the Louisiana coast in the Macondo Prospect oil field, exploded. The blast killed 11 workers and injured 17 others. It caused the Deepwater Horizon to sink, and started a massive ongoing offshore oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; which is now considered the worst environmental disaster in United States history. As of today, the oil has been leaking into the Gulf of Mexico for over 86 days. The department of energy claims over 1,470,000 gallons of oil are leaking into the Gulf every day.
