12113762 story Hundred-Ton Dome To Collect Oil Spill 565 Posted by CmdrTaco on Wednesday May 05, 2010 @11:31AM from the big-fire-go-boom dept. eldavojohn writes "After failing to contain the Gulf oil spill any other way, a massive containment dome had the finishing touches put on yesterday. It amounts to a giant concrete-and-steel box made by Wild Well Control that is designed to siphon the crude oil away from the water. They expect an 85 percent collection with this device. It's not a pretty situation as Google Earth illustrates."
