COSTA-CONCORDIA-CRUISE-SHIP-SATELLITE-PHOTO

Commercial satellite operator DigitalGlobe has released a high-resolution satellite image of the Costa Concordia shipwreck as seen from space. (PHOTO BELOW) The Colorado-based aerial photography company operates its own group of satellites and contracts with commercial and government entities for defense, intelligence, mapping, environmental monitoring and other projects, according to their website. The image, which was taken on Jan. 17 — four days after the luxury cruise liner capsized off the coast of Italy — shows the massive scale of the disaster and ensuing cleanup effort. Italy’s Isola del Giglio, where the ship ran aground, is pictured on the left hand side of the photo. To the right, the Mediterranean Sea separates the island from the Italian mainland, about ten miles to the east.
