· Dec 3, 2020 ·

These are the last moments of the iconic radio telescope in Puerto Rico.

The National Science Foundation released video footage of the famous Arecibo Observatory's collapse and it's positively terrifying. Make sure you play it with the sound on.

That's a 900-ton receiver platform crashing down 400 feet!

Here's another angle showing the cables snapping.

Thankfully no one was hurt. But it is a sad end of an era.
