Take a minute if you want a break from the heavy news to see the cruise ship Costa Concordia being brought into an upright position.

Reuters is among several news outlets that have posted time-lapse video, condensing the 19-hour Monday-into-Tuesday operation into about 60 seconds.

As we said earlier, the ship ran aground off the coast of Tuscany in January 2012. Thirty-two people died. Two bodies have yet to be recovered.
