Costa Concordia upright again

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Costa Concordia upright again

amazing feat of engineering. If I had the money and time, I would have gone there just to watch from shore
