BP tries second, smaller dome to contain oil

CNN is reporting that BP is at this hour making a second attempt to stem the flow of oil using a smaller containment dome.

The new dome is a fraction of the previous dome's size; five feet tall compared to for stories tall. It is thought that by reducing the size of the structure the response crew may be able to better prevent the build-up of hydrates, which prevented crews from closing up one of the leaks last weekend.

Company officials have said that should this new effort fail they may have to resort to shooting trash into the breach, in an effort known as a "junk shot."

...Of course should that fail, they may have to call Stephen Colbert.
