Puerto Rican scientists mourn lack of Arecibo Observatory’s iconic telescope


In a 12 months filled with horrible new sorrows and burdens, the collapse of Arecibo Observatory‘s iconic radio telescope looks like a very brutal loss to Puerto Ricans.

The 57-year-old telescope, an enormous dish 1,000 toes (305 meters) throughout, has been an icon of science on the island, a number of Puerto Ricans instructed House.com. The observatory’s conferences have introduced all kinds of researchers to go to the island, discipline journeys to its guests’ heart have been a “ceremony of passage” for Puerto Rican youngsters, and its native analysis applications have proven college students that science is open to them.
