Full Version: The Arecibo Observatory is gone

The Arecibo played a big role in a lot more than one might think, making a lot of first discoveries like pulsars and exoplanets, playing a role in far too many things you've heard of to name, and being a setpiece from James Bond to Contact to Battlefield 4.

The place had been cleared out after being deemed unsafe and unsalvageable. The final tragedy is no one set up a live feed. 

Maybe we could make an article in OA on, 'Arecibo-II, the first major observatory on the far side of the moon.'
