I still can't believe that's real even after reading the entire article. It sounds like bad science fiction intentionally explained poorly: "yes we have this film and it takes the heat and sends it to outer space so there's only cold left"

Pretty amazing. Imagine if we could plant a camera or tracking device into an asteroid.

This bites:

https://gizmodo.com/arecibo-heartbreak- ... 1845714893

The recent failure of two support cables at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico has destabilized the structure such that it cannot be repaired without placing construction workers at significant risk, according to officials with the National Science Foundation. As feared, the beloved 1,000-foot telescope will have to be decommissioned.

As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse, we received news this morning that the giant dish at Arecibo will have to be demolished. The National Science Foundation came to this hard decision following a review of engineering assessments, which concluded that the observatory is in seriously bad shape and that it cannot be stabilized without placing workers in danger. The NSF is now planning for the controlled decommission of the dish, ending a historic 57-year run.

“I want to say this as forcefully as possible,” said Ralph Gaume, the director of NSF’s Division of Astronomical Sciences, at a call for reporters earlier today. “We’re not closing the Arecibo Observatory.”


We've almost all seen/heard about this place at some point, even if just in a movie or TV show:
