KUOW's John Ryan reports from the Bellingham waterfront. <p> The Arctic Challenger is Shell's oil-spill containment barge. It's here behind me at the Bellingham Shipping Terminal. It's supposed to be in place in the Arctic to help mop up any oil spills. It's been under construction here at the Bellingham Shipping Terminal for months. <p> This weekend, a tugboat pulled it out into Puget Sound so its "containment dome" could be tested in 160 feet of water.
