Default Arecibo radio telescope, an icon of astronomy is lost

Quote:
The National Science Foundation (NSF) will decommission Arecibo Observatory's massive radio dish after damage has made the facility too dangerous to repair, the agency announced today (Nov. 19).

The announcement came as scientists awaited a verdict about the fate of the iconic observatory after damage to the complex cabling supporting a 900-ton science platform suspended over the dish. In August, a cable slipped out of its socket, but engineers evaluating the situation deemed it stable; earlier this month, a second cable unexpectedly snapped, leaving Arecibo's fate much more precarious. After considering three separate engineering reports, the NSF, which owns the property, has decided the facility is unstable enough that there is no way to repair the damage that does not put personnel at undue risk.

That´s a pity, I remember marveling over it as a kid.

It was completed in 1973, and as a young child in the '70's and a teenager in the early/mid-80's I marveled over it's design and potential as well.

The Late Jew Astronomer Carl Sagan regularly featured it on the very popular PBS 'Cosmos' series.

Unfortunately, as the entire World turns Browner and Browner thanks to the Tribe's advancing Agenda, younger White people are far more committed to Conquering their own Race than Deep Space...

Since its construction in 1963, Arecibo has made many contributions to astronomy. In 1974, the telescope was used to transmit Earth's version of the Wow Signal into deep space. https://vnnforum.com/showpost.php?p=...8&postcount=66 In addition to Cosmos, Arecibo was featured in the 1996 movie Contact and in an episode of The X-Files. It was also featured in Arthur C. Clarke's novel 2010, but the Very Large Array in New Mexico stood in for it in the 1984 movie version. Also in a James Bond movie which I have not seen.

It's unfortunate the telescope will not be repaired, and I'm sad to see it go.

As I noted, Carl Sagan was Jewish.

I loved the funny way he used to wind up while pronouncing his letter 'B's.

'This...is the AriciBbo Radio Telescope. It's capable of detecting the electromagnetic emissions of Bbillions and Bbillions of distant stars...'
