I found that thing on G-Maps last night

/It's been there a while
 
2013-09-16 10:20:55 PM
I watched this when it started around 2 a.m. this morning (my time) and then all day today. At real time it was like watching grass grow, but a time lapse of the 'roll' should be pretty impressive.

Considering what could have gone wrong, the fact that it looked routine and boring is a testament to the engineers' skill.

I've had it on my other monitor since around 2 AM as well. It's pretty amazing. I want some IMAX closeups of the undersea side.

We did too. The detail of the 3-D model was very cool.

Ohhhh boo. Reuters should have got the followup link hits.. Huffington post didn't cover this.. Reuters nailed the entire coverage with an awesome 24/7 live blogging by them of the entire process.

The smell must be atrocious.

styckx posted this timelapse in the old thread, it shows that almost nothing happens until night falls and even then almost all the action is in the last couple of hours.

January 13 2012.  Those of us who work in the cruise industry are VERY aware of the date.

thanks for the link RoyBatty :)

If you want to learn to cuss in Italian just look up the audio of the Italian coast guard demanding that the captain go back to the ship

According to this, it took 10 hours. It eased into the water like an old man into a nice warm bath - no offense.

Yeah, I know. I'm sure you know even better

/my point was it's been there long enough to be able to locate it on Google maps
//some satellite views don't get updated that often, from what I've seen, so I was a little surprised

They tend to get updated sooner when there's something people specifically want to look at there.

Half price balcony upgrades?

For those wondering.. Sunrise is in about 40 minutes there if you want to see this thing in daylight

Heh... just Google "f*ckups so monumental they can be seen from orbit"

I was a bit disappointed Google Street View didn't go through it.

I can't even get out of bed in 11 seconds, but these guys righted the Costa Concordia in that time. That's amazing.

It appears from the stream right now that they've righted the Costa Concordia and are filling it with cars. That doesn't seem right.
 
2013-09-17 12:37:52 AM
So, they finally got it up?
 
2013-09-17 12:37:53 AM
Saw the feed all day on Telegraph.co.uk.Salvage teams say it should stay in place through the winter.

I took a marine biology class and learned that anything that was under water stinks.

I checked back, off and on for a good portion of a work day till I saw the sun setting over there.  And it seemed they had about 20 or less feet of the submerged portions lifted.  And now, what?  Oh, ohm, what's the frequency, Kenneth?

Nice. Someone should get an overhead picture to see how deformed it is.
 
2013-09-17 01:16:45 AM
I wonder if anyone has been snorkeling in to loot the remains? It's a fine coastal tradition and I would be astonished if the local pirates hadn't stripped the valuable bits long ago. Or maybe that's too cynical.

Good jorb, engineers!

More than I can say about the farking captain, who couldn't abandon ship quickly enough.

Thank you. Good to know that the ancient sea plundering traditions haven't been lost.

Epic fail.
They overshot even keel by at least 1.5 degrees.

I overlayed the U.S.S. Oklahoma on this since it was the most mentioned large ship to undergo this same process to upright it.

I've always wanted to get overlaid. Was it good for you?
