It was well maintained and has been in service for 60 years. The hurricane that came through a few months ago damaged it beyond repair. Broke several support cables that caused strain on the remaining cables. It fell last week. It is amazing that the drone was looking at the main support hub when it separated from it’s mount. Rice University had several projects there while I was working there in the Space Physics and Astronomy department in the mid 60’2 through 70’s. I have not been to the site.

When did this take place?  A shame nobody maintained it.

  Cool video.



  I was disappointed - Sean Bean wasn’t impaled at the end! (see Bond #17, “Goldeneye”)

      W5SFA Members,



      Thought you might be interested in this video of the Arecibo Radio Telescope collapse. Be sure and turn your audio up to full and put it on FULL screen!
