Königsberg required major repairs before she would be able to return to Germany, so she was temporarily moored in the harbor with her broadside facing the harbor entrance.

This would allow her to bring all of her main battery guns to bear against any British naval attack. The rest of Gruppe 3 returned to Germany. On the evening of 9 April, she was attacked by British bombers, but to no effect. The following morning, the British launched another air raid on the ship.

Königsberg ' s thin deck armor rendered her quite vulnerable to dive bomber attack. The dive bombers attacked at 7: Half of the dive bombers had completed their dives before the crew realized they were under attack.

Only one large anti-aircraft gun was reported as being manned with shells being fired once every five seconds from the aft of the ship with lighter anti-air weapons firing from the shore and adjacent ships firing even later in the attack.

One penetrated her thin deck armor, went through the ship, and exploded in the water, causing significant structural damage. Another hit destroyed the auxiliary boiler room.

Two more bombs exploded in the water next to the ship; the concussion from the blasts tore large holes in the hull. She took on a heavy list almost immediately, and the captain ordered the crew to abandon the ship. It took slightly less than three hours from the start of the attack for the ship to completely capsize and sink, which gave the crew enough time to evacuate many of the dead and wounded.

They also had time to remove a significant amount of ammunition and equipment from the stricken cruiser. The wreck was raised on 17 July , [2] and slowly broken up for scrap thereafter. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. List of light cruisers of Germany. Shipwrecks and maritime incidents in April Brummer , U 18 Apr: Each work within the room would be intensly bright without the effects of the paint and would be almost too bright to look at.

In the work Constellation Grow Lights , lights that are used for growing plants have been painted over to block out almost all of the UV light creating a contrast to the lights original intention. Only with the actions of Dadson does he create a cosmic space where the energy of the industrial lights that usually function to make it impossible to see the night sky within the city create their own unique constellation.

The installation creates a place for meditation, where the intense pull of the lights draws one closer to reveal the texture and build-up of paint while making evident the energy contained within the lights.

Andrew Dadson lives and works in Vancouver. Scott Gallery, Vancouver Selected group exhibitions include: A While Ago I Remembered. Anche il motivo geometrico del pavimento rimanda alla lavorazione tipica delle mattonelle arabe e islamiche, una volta comuni nella maggior parte delle abitazioni di quei paesi. Current Galleria Franco Noero has decided to make available some areas of Apply its premises, for a period of 6 to 12 months, to independent organisations, artists and not-for-profit spaces on the Italian and international scene.

With the aim of bringing about real interaction between contemporary languages and experiments, they are invited to submit a programme that is completely independent from that of the Gallery. For the first year, from November , the space was made available to Cripta , a not-for-profit organisation.
