Here’s the latest research on just where all of the oil that gushed into the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the BP oil spill went.

According to NPR:

Scientists on a research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico are finding a substantial layer of oily sediment stretching for dozens of miles in all directions. Their discovery suggests that a lot of oil from the Deepwater Horizon didn’t simply evaporate or dissipate into the water — it has settled to the seafloor.
