The Costa Concordia, carrying 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members, turned on its side after striking rocks off the Italian island of Giglio on Jan. 13, 2012. See the astonishing images of the Costa Concordia and learn more about the ship.

Salvage crews will send in tiny robotic submarines to survey the damage, allowing workers to create models of the ship and decide how to best proceed with the next phase of the operation. The ultimate goal is to tow the ship to a new location, remove all the contents and return all items to their owners. That's not expected to happen until summer 2014.
