U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu signaled his lack of confidence in the industry experts trying to control BP Plc's leaking oil well by hand-picking a team of scientists with reputations for creative problem solving.

Dispatched to Houston by President Barack Obama to deal with the crisis, Chu said Wednesday that five "extraordinarily intelligent" scientists from around the country will help BP and industry experts think of back-up plans to cut off oil from the well, leaking 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) below sea-level.

Members of the Chu team are credited with accomplishments including designing the first hydrogen bomb, inventing techniques for mining on Mars and finding a way to precisely position biomedical needles.

"I don't think there is a lot of confidence in BP in Washington right now," David Pursell, a managing director at Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. LLC in Houston, said by phone. Chu's decision to bring in additional scientists may reflect that concern, he said.

This is a great idea!

As a bit of a.. natural problem solver myself, I know how easy it is to be limited by ones past training and perfunctory remedies.
