    60 years since it sent a "Hello" it is no more.

    900Tons that's one heavy item to come crashing down.

    Been following this, and was sad to hear they likely won't
    be replacing it.

    Arecibo was a huge asset for the radio astronomy world,
    and I do hope that someone will fund an equally impressive
    radio telescope. The cost to replace Arecibo in today's dollars
    would be astronomical (so to speak).

    I'm sure it will be missed in some of the scientific community when it comes to the astronomy world. Interesting discoveries that is timelined in the link.
