Raising the Costa Concordia

Remember that cruise ship over in Italy that ran aground and lurched sideways because the captain was wanting to impress some woman waving at him from shore? It has been sitting there half submerged in the sea for two years.

It finally got righted. The entire ordeal turned into one of the largest salvage operations ever in modern history.  If you missed the uprighting, there is a website with some awesome high-res photo that are worth the look,
