Thanks for the link.
While it is not good news, it sounds like they will be able to fix it. 👍

Shame about Arecibo :(, I'll have to see what Scott (one of my favourite youtubers) says about it all.

Took my wife to see it when we were in Puerto Rico on vacation about 20 years ago. She humored me even though it was almost a 2 hour drive each way (it helped that the countryside around it is absolutely gorgeous) but even she was impressed when she saw it. I can still remember the sorta weird background noise when were walking around the observation area at edge of the dish. I think I might even have the t-shirt I bought at the gift shop shoved in a drawer somewhere.

Very sad to hear of it's imminent collapse or demolition :(, but agreed it's not worth risking peoples lives to try to save it.
