The Arecibo Radar was far from being obsolete, it pushed the limits of our scientific knowledge and discoveries in the fields of atmospheric science, planetary science, and Radio astronomy.
The loss of the Bill E. Gordon radio telescope has left a void in the world of radio science, the mountains that cradled it, and the hearts of many visitors and enthusiasts who appreciated the beautiful engineering marvel. It’s a difficult time for the scientists and those who grew up seeing the telescope every day in the fields of atmospheric science, planetary science, and Radio astronomy. Experience the legacy of a 57 year journey, from the small island of Puerto Rico to the deepest regions of the galaxy with the world’s most powerful telescope.
