"The iconic Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico is to be dismantled
amid safety fears, officials have announced.
A review found that the 305m telescope was at risk of catastrophic
collapse, following damage to its support system.
It concluded that the huge structure could not be repaired without
posing a potentially deadly risk to construction workers.
The telescope has been a key scientific resource for radio astronomers
for 57 years."
