The Italian Sunken Ship From Space Looks Surreally Peaceful

Digital Globe has directed one of their Worldview satellites to the island of Giglio, Italy, to see how the Costa Concordia shipwreck looks from space. It's surreal to see the ship peacefully sitting there on its side. Especially because it's not.

The ship is now moving, in fact. All rescue operations have been halted as the authorities wait for the ship to reach a new resting place. 23 people are still missing. [Digital Globe via Slashgear]
