Nova: "Sunken Ship Rescue"

Travel with WGBH’s Nova to the greatest ship recovery project in history, as more than 500 divers and engineers attempt to raise and salvage the Costa Concordia cruise ship, which capsized off the coast of Italy in 2012. Together they work around the clock to move the 114,000-ton ship from its precarious perch on the edge of a 60-meter high underwater cliff, an unprecedented technical and logistical challenge.
