After the stranding of the Italian cruiser Costa Concordia on January the 13th 2012, several questions remain unanswered : how such a ship, equipped with the most advanced and up to date GPS and radar detection technologies, can hit a rock located so close from the shore. OCEAN 71 Magazine shows on a map the Costa Concordia‘s last minutes itinerary before she hit the rock of the little Italian island. We got these information thanks to the Costa Concordia‘s inboard AIS beacon. Prior to the accident, you can observe that the beacon did not record the ship’s stop in the port of Civitavecchia ; the AIS beacon should have been shut down at the time. Why ? Maybe the fatal accident will force the shipping companies to be more transparent on their traffic.
