BP capturing majority of Gulf spill

BP says the mile-long tube inserted into the blown out well is now taking in 210,000 gallons of oil a day, capturing nearly all of the escaping oil.
That number matches the predicted total amount of oil spewing into the ocean, officials say more oil is leaking from the busted pipe.
Scientists now believe the original estimate was incorrect and that the rig spill is actually much more severe than first predicted.
