A new lighthouse would probably be a fitting memorial to the 2012 sinking of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy. Open-idea competition platform matterbetter has been running a contest to design a new lighthouse concept to live at the spot where the ship capsized, and while the entries aren’t realistic, they’re…
After two years, the Costa Concordia was finally righted, refloated and towed to the safe harbors of Genoa. This is what the rescue mission looked like from the European Space Agency's new Sentinel-1A satellite.
The infamous Costa Concordia is sailing again after running aground on the island of Giglio, Italy. Francesco Marinari has filmed this drone video as it's being transported for scrap to Genoa. It's so eerie and weird. The structure that keeps it afloat makes it look like some kind of Mad Max/Waterworld prop.
Removing the shipwrecked Costa Concordia from its resting spot off the coast of Giglio Island has been a slow project. But this morning, a team of engineers is finally refloating the sunken ship—and you can watch it happening right here.
Remember how the 984-foot-long cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground in Italy in 2012? Now, police divers have re-entered the vessel, days before an attempt to re-float it, and this video shows exactly what it looks like two years on.
Yesterday, engineers successfully led one of the largest salvage operations in history on the shipwrecked Costa Concordia, which smashed into a small Italian island twenty months ago. Workers were able to right the ship in roughly 19 hours. This graphic shows how they did it, and how they'll float it away.
It's been almost two years since the 984-foot-long cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground on the island of Giglio, Italy, killing 32 and injuring 64. Its carcass remained there until now. Watch the rescue operation in this time lapse.
After an incredible 19-hour salvage effort, the crippled Costa Concordia cruise liner was successfully pulled upright from its side in the waters off Tuscany yesterday in a make-or-break engineering attempt that had never before been tried in such conditions. Here's a much, much closer look.
The 114,500-ton Costa Concordia luxury liner has been rotting on an Italian reef since last January, after a collision that killed 32 of the 4,229 passengers and crew on board and has left the ship stranded for nearly 24 months. This morning, a crew of more than 500 engineers is attempting to finally right the Costa…
The wreck of the cruise ship Costa Concordia in early 2012 resulted in 32 deaths and the destruction of the ship, resulting in a $300 million salvage operation that may be the most expensive in history. A pair of quadcopters equipped with cameras capture the sad vessel and the massive operation to remove it from the…
The Titanic's sinking was a hundred years ago this month, and not all the commemorations are directly related to James Cameron's movie. For one thing, we can finally get to the bottom of just why anyone ever called Titanic "unsinkable."
It's been a month since the fatal sinking of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy. And, now that the half million gallons of on-board fuel are being safely siphoned off, the ship's owner must decide—raise it from the seabed with hundreds of thousands of ping-pong balls or call in the Jawas and have it dismantled…
Digital Globe has directed one of their Worldview satellites to the island of Giglio, Italy, to see how the Costa Concordia shipwreck looks from space. It's surreal to see the ship peacefully sitting there on its side. Especially because it's not.
This night vision video was taken by one of the first rescue helicopters to arrive to the sinking site of the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that ran aground on the island of Giglio, Italy.
The 984-foot-long cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground on the island of Giglio, Italy, killing at least three people. More than 4,000 people have been evacuated, but 50 are still missing. The night photos remind me of the sinking Titanic.
