Take a behind-the-scenes look at the engineering efforts to stop the 2010 Deep Water Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the worst environmental catastrophe in U.S. history. The program follows an elite team of chemists and engineers from the federal government and private companies as they attempt to plug the leak inside the oil rig 5,000 feet below the water's surface. On the Louisiana coast, biologists and environmentalists struggle to keep the oil from damaging the area's fragile ecosystems.
