BP is encouraged by early results from Gulf well – Yahoo! News.

Top Hat 10 has stopped the oil leak for now.

The disaster is far from finished, but the early results of the well capping are promising.  After the engineers and scientists analyze the data the cap may need to be reopened to do more testing.

If all goes well, then drilling of the relief wells will continue and the well can be shut off for good.

Why the wait and worry?  Pressure readings from the well will tell them whether the pipe line going into the mantle is leaking or not and how bad it is leaking.  If they make the wrong move a horrible situation can become worse and uncontrollable with oil coming up from multiple locations around the sea floor.
