Watch Amazing Time-Lapse Video of Concordia Pulled Upright

The Costa Concordia cruise ship, which capsized in January of 2012, has finally been pulled upright after a 19-hour procedure called “parbuckling.” The wreck happened off the Italian island of Tuscany and killed 32 people. This is the first such procedure for a ship of this size and was expected to take only 12 hours, but was finally righted and will be stabilized before being towed away to be used for scrap metal.
