HOUSTON For the first time since the Gulf oil spill disaster started on April 20, the entire flow of oil was being contained Thursday as part of BP's pressure testing of a new cap, BP and federal officials said.
If the cap holds, the idea is to keep it on and the flow checked until a relief well can plug the blownout well in August.

Looks like the well may be capped.

Here is a nice article about Kevin Costner's clean-up machines from a source that I trust.

Maybe they will have an army of these ready for the next accident...
