Costa Concordia Time Lapse Video Shows Parbuckling Operation In 1 Minute

Salvage crews finished pulling the Costa Concordia wreck upright on Tuesday, more than 20 months after the cruise ship capsized off the coast of Italy's Giglio Island. The parbuckling operation to right the ship was the largest ever undertaken, and the AP notes that engineers will now prepare the wrecked cruise liner to withstand winter so it can be towed and scrapped in 2014.

Take a look at the impressive time lapse video that condenses the 19-hour operation into just one minute.
