NEW ORLEANS- The final cap on the BP oil well that blew bears a memorial to the 11 men killed in the explosion, on April 20th.

Rear Adm. Paul Zukunft says the "capping stack" was installed on Monday on the well and it is the final step in plugging and abandoning the Macondo well.

He described the memorial design as an 11-point star, with each point representing a life lost in the explosion.
