Outside-the-box thinking needed to contain oil spill

President Obama has called for an "all hands on deck" response to the Gulf oil spill, but what does that mean? Similar to the Apollo 13 incident, outside-the-box thinking is desperately needed to solve this disaster. The president needs to get outside the industry experts from leading schools and companies: MIT, Cal Tech, Los Alamos, NASA, NOAA, Navy Seals, anybody with brain power, to come up with a creative solution, now! Relying on BP and the Coast Guard to solve this is a joke.
