More drama concerning another observatory. Looks like a cable snapped.

Left in pieces

“The Arecibo Observatory — a gargantuan telescope in Puerto Rico famous for scouring the cosmos for asteroids and alien life — went quiet this week, following a devastating accident that left the telescope's reflector dish in pieces.

On Monday (Aug. 10) at approximately 2:45 a.m. local time, a metal cable at the facility snapped, slashing through the radar dish and tearing open a 100-foot-long (30 meters) hole, according to a statement from the University of Central Florida, which operates the National Science Foundation-owned facility. The snapped cable also smashed through several other cables and platforms that support the dish, causing debris to rain down on the ground below and making it harder for technicians to access the site.”

Aliens probably did it , they have form for damaging infrastructure.


Either that or it's the more prosaic cable excuse given.

You mean how the Ant people crept from their holes at night and sabotaged the cable? Im good at reading between lines lol

Well, so much for tracking the next doom-porn asteroid. Now we won't know it's here until it has wiped us out, and some future archeologists dig our frozen-in-time bodies out from the ash and wonder why the hell we all died with masks on.

To sabotage the satellite itself ' assuming it is sabotage ' is interesting really, Almost seems like an attack of anger no real premeditation is seen .

If they wanted to stop the sattelite then destroy its operating system , destroy its memory / back up systems etc etc etc this could have been done from a distance with some sort of unseen heat weapon. But physically destroying the Sat itself seems less intelligent more emotional .

I dunno , I do know I simply do not believe in coincidence. This Sat was destroyed the question is why and by whom ?

There’s is nothing like sending a good visual warning. People have more of a visceral reaction that way. That sat was trashed. Im still thinking ant people

I hope they get it fixed soon.

This is one of the most iconic radio telescopes in the world and the largest.

Not only for alien hunters but for radio astronomers in general this is on of the world's most important installations for observing the heaven's and one that can not easily be replaced.

Thick steel cables don't tend to break very often, they do break however and usually on sites such as suspension bridges acoustic monitoring is in place to detect the snapping sound as individual steel fibres break as the cable ages and deteriorates through thing's like ductile stress over time and corrosion, that said unless no one is even attempting to keep this site maintained and checking out those cables which I should imagine they would be this is highly suspicious, that said a check on the break point should reveal the culprit and it is most likely just a combination of aging and wear and tear but then again?.

Just maybe someone wanted the site shut down.

From the article:




In 1974, astronomers used the radio telescope to transmit a binary code toward a dense cluster of stars 25,000 light-years away, hoping the message might get picked up by another technologically-advanced civilization. (It wasn't).


I wouldn't have answered either. 25,000 years from now we'll get a response.

We are in a new world that may have found loopholes which could theoretically allow faster than light communication.

There was a poster here years ago that claimed he'd worked for NASA and that FTL communication had been discovered and tested on a Mars Rover.

I'm useless on the archives so would struggle to find the thread/s.

Not the only one that have been "shut down"

They want us to look away when it happens

I found it. Apparently it was debunked as a hoax.

Or was it...

ATS removed the original threads so quick link to his claims.
