I understand that this iconic telescope is about to collapse. It is beyond upgrade or refurb. But there is good news. Aside from turning it into a skate park.
Here is a list of currently active, and much newer, radio telescopes that are able to carry on. And perform far more functions.
An article I saw stated this was in bad shape for a while. They looked into repairing it but determined it wasn't possible/cost too much. So this collapse was just the end of the road.My understanding is that two cables supporting the receiver broke, and another was in immediate danger of breaking. The receiver actually falling to the ground yesterday probably caused irreparable damage.
