But this was a disaster with two distinct parts — first a blowout, then the destruction of the Horizon. The second part, which killed 11 people and injured dozens, has escaped intense scrutiny, as if it were an inevitable casualty of the blowout.
It was not.

quote: … Bob’s love of music eventually attracted others to him and a band was formed – The Astronauts. As a local group they played at 3.2 beer establishments near CU and many sock hops, armory dances, and grange halls in and around Colorado and surrounding states. The Astronauts became national and international recording and performing stars by impressing an RCA Victor Records’ executive during a 1962 performance at the Tulagi nightclub and dance hall on 13th Street in the Hill area. In 1963 their first of seven record albums came out which sold well to both national and international audiences. The group had the number one hit in Japan during 1964-65.

Despite claims by BP and the EPA that Corexit, the chemical dispersant BP used to sink the oil was ‘as harmless as dish soap.’, on June 23, 2010, the US Coast Guard confirmed the death of two members of the cleanup crew who had been overcome by exposure to BP’s chemical dispersant.

The report leaves unanswered many questions about the spill’s environmental impact that scientists are likely to be researching—and BP and the government are likely to be fighting over—for years.
For instance, officials sprayed some 1.8 million gallons of chemical dispersants on the oil to break it up and prevent it from washing ashore. In some sediment, tests found a chemical contained in dispersant, but its environmental impact is unknown, the report said.
