The Costa Concordia has risen!

After a year and a half sitting on its side, a multi-national team of engineers rigged up a cradle to upright the ship. Two bodies are still inside plus all the waste and toilet overflows. Yuck. Concordia is the 300 yard long monster that Captain Francesco Schettino, drove into a rock off the Italian island of Giglio in January last year. 32 people died . Four of the crew have been found guilty and the Captain is awaiting trial. A new 3,700–passenger mega-ship is being built to replace it. Read the background.

Here’s how they floated it….it’s going to salvage next. Click to enlarge.
