There were three powerful explosions on this Brazilian oil rig, killing as many as ten. If the photo doesn't do it justice, consider that the rig is 40 stories high.

Re: 3/17: Listing oil rig

This would be the world's largest oil rig. I don't know that is was Brazilian but it is in Brazilian waters. However where is all the smoke?

You sure this isn't a clip from a Bond movie?

Can't be a Bond clip. There's no small plane flying out from the secret hangar that's underwater.

It's my day for followup pictures. Here are shots of (left, top) the partly sinking rig, (left bottom) the mostly sunken rig, and then (right) the entirely sunk rig. It was in fact owned by a Brazilian company.

Why is our ocean not that blue?

Tourists don't come to see it.

If that oil rig continues to leak, their ocean will look just as gray as New Jersey's.

The Irish Sea, please. Jersey's ocean is artificially gray and bleak. The Irish have a naturally stony-gray sea.

Give credit where it's due.
