Arecibo Telescope Collapses Today Before It Could Be Dismantled By Contractors

A few weeks ago, Nextbigfuture noted the plan to dismantle the Arecibo Telescope after some wires and small sections of the telescope failed. However, the vast majority of the Arecibo telescope has collapsed. The various towers and cables are now mostly down.

Ada Monzon has a photo where the dust is still settling.

The entire receiver and support structures collapsed.
