So sad regarding the radio telescope.

What a shame about the radio telescope.
Spectaculaire comme démolition pour cette grand mère qui a eu une belle vie !
Now its time to gather the International Community (YES -INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY) to work with and lobby the NSF to replace the resource with a better more practical facility for our times.
Considering the history (and the state of the Puerto Rican economy) I am sure that this would not be an unreasonable task?
Both the WORLD and the PEOPLE OF PUERTO RICO BENEFIT !
No point in another telescope on earth. Spend the tech on space based telescopes. Too many issue with RF and diminishing magnetosphere to bother with on the surface.
Not insinuating anything...just interesting that we were told a couple weeks ago the radio telescope would be demolished then as the video shows there JUST HAPPENNED to be a drone recording video right next to the cable joints that failed first. Another point of interest...the Shard building in London is not the first and only building to beacon a Morse code message with it's roof top lights. The Capitol Records building in Hollywood has been beaconing the message "Hollywood" since the building's completion in 1956. The Morse code beacon was first switched on by Leila Morse, granddaughter of Samuel FB Morse.
The only problem with space based telescopes is cost and longevity !
How long did Aricebo last? 60 Years... and at what total cost including manufacture and operation?
[ I would bet the cost of the manufacture and flight-to-orbit cost of just one "repair" module for Hubble ]
Long live The Hubble Space Telescope - Yet its very sick at the moment !
Sounds great. What's your billing address?
