- Arecibo broken
Anyone have more information...here is Scott Manley report....not good!
That type of long term cable damage would have been just about impossible to repair after one failed far below its rated capacity. The remaining cables with 1/3 of a 900 ton compression load balanced with anchor cables was a hair trigger that unfortunately got pulled.
That drone footage is unbelievable. You can actually see the paint on the cables come flying off as they get ripped apart!
