Arecibo Observatory’s Radio Telescope Collapses, Incredible Footage Captured

Sadly, the evaluation was correct: Arecibo was dangerously unstable, and it collapsed on Tuesday.

Thanks to Carlos Perez and Adrian Bague, there is incredible footage of the moment.

That answers my question as to whether there’d be video of the moment, but I didn’t think there would be video only because Carlos set up a well-placed GoPro and Adrian is an amazing drone pilot.

Sad as it is, having this video is important to see how it went down, so as to learn from it in the future.
