Arecibo Observatory telescope cleanup could cost up to $50 million, NSF reports

Cleansing up the collapsed radio telescope on the iconic Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico might price between $30 million and $50 million, in line with the Nationwide Science Basis (NSF).

The price estimate, revealed Friday (March 5), is specified by an NSF report required by Congress after the enormous radio telescope’s hanging science platform crashed down by means of the 1,000-foot (305 meters) dish on Dec. 1. Two supporting cables had snapped on the telescope within the months earlier than the collapse.
