Giant Arecibo Observatory on brink of 'catastrophic failure' - NZ Herald

'Crisis' as second cable snaps supporting a metal tower platform above the telescope's main reflector dish

Second cable failure puts iconic Arecibo Observatory at risk of collapse – Physics World

The 1,000-foot-wide dish is located in the Arecibo Observatory which is right above the sinkhole in Puerto Rico’s lush mountain region.The 1,000-foot-wide dish is located in the Arecibo Observatory which is right above the sinkhole in Puerto Rico’s lush mountain region.

Puerto Rico's renowned radio telescopes could come down tumbling due to cable failures

The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is in an exceptionally precarious state following the recent failure of two support cables, placing the future of this renowned facility in doubt.The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is in an exceptionally precarious state following the recent failure of two support cables, placing the future of this renowned facility in doubt.

900-Ton Platform Threatens to Crush Famed Arecibo Observatory Dish

The Arecibo Observatory radio telescope has been used to track asteroids heading towards earth. Now the famous telescope - featured in the movies "Contact" and "GoldenEye" - is heading for collapse. The gigantic cables that hold it up are slowly unraveling.The Arecibo Observatory radio telescope has been used to track asteroids heading towards earth. Now the famous telescope - featured in the movies "Contact" and "GoldenEye" - is heading for collapse. The gigantic cables that hold it up are slowly unraveling.

The giant, aging cables that support one of the world's largest single-dish radio telescopes are slowly unraveling in this U.S. territory, pushing an observatory renowned for its key role in astronomical discoveries to the brink of collapse.
