Thousands upon thousands of acres of land and water have been destroyed at the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig--just because of one silly oil spill. Now you can see it all happen with these never-before-seen photos from the US Coast Guard, NGC production crew and salvage company that responded to the explosion.

Captured during the early days of this horrific environmental disaster, you can see the rig starting to collapse. What is happening at Deepwater Horizon in these photos looks like something out of a movie, an awful movie where you know something bad is going to happen.
