More than two and a half years since it crashed near
Isola del Giglio, Italy, the wreck of the Costa Concordia
was successfully refloated this week, and has begun its
final journey—a four-day trip to a scrap yard in Genoa.
The cruise ship capsized after striking a reef on January
13, 2012, killing 32 passengers and crew members. The
complex salvage operation was the largest and most
expensive in history.
The wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship was
refloated using air tanks attached to its sides.
