A giant telescope in Puerto Rice has landed over 100 meters down. The telescope was hanging from cables above a research building. The telescope was very old and could not be repaired. Fortunately, no one was present when it happened.
In August, a cable snapped for the first time and the telescope was severely damaged. Scientists were hoping they could still fix it. They made a plan to safely bring down the telescope in the future.
But at the end of November another cable snapped. Then it became clear that he really couldnt be made anymore.
Largest in the world
The telescope was used, among other things, for research into alien life. He was also featured in famous films. The telescope was the largest telescope in the world until 2016. The largest telescope in the world is now located in the southwest of China.
