Hello and happy Tuesday everyone, hope you’re all doing well out there. The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico continues to grow at a rate, which is in uncharted waters for the United States. This oil slick is so big, in fact, that it can be seen from satellite floating around in space around 23,000 miles above the Earth’s surface:
