Members of the U.S. salvage company Titan and Italian firm Micoperi inspect the wreck of Italy's Costa Concordia cruise ship after emerging from water, near the harbor of Giglio Porto on Sept. 18. Salvage operators in Italy lifted the Costa Concordia cruise ship upright from its watery grave off the island of Giglio in the biggest-ever project of its kind. The ship was upright for the first time since the tragedy on Jan. 13, 2012, and led to applause and cheers in the port.
Before salvage workers attempt the historic task of refloating the marooned Costa Concordia, video has revealed the ghostly world — frozen in time — deep inside the luxury cruise ship. Police divers enter the 950' (290m) vessel, which smashed into rocks on the Italian island of Giglio in 2012.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.
