Video: timelapse of the raising of the Costa Concordia

This timelapse video shows the entire parbuckling of the Costa Concordia, and demonstrates what a massive task it was to right the sunken ship. Raw video, no reporter narration. Here's an alternate, non-embeddable version: The BBC's, which shows a different view.

    Slightly used cruise ship for sale. One owner. Main safety features include automatic ejection of ships "captain". Interested purchaser need not supply sailing credentials of any kind.
