A gi­ant tele­scope in the US ter­ri­tory of Puerto Rico, which searched the skies for as­ter­oids and alien life, has been ac­ci­den­tally de­stroyed. It seems that a metal ca­ble snapped, smash­ing through the 305m radar dish and other parts of the struc­ture. The de­bris then fell, caus­ing more dam­age, and the re­flec­tor dish has been left in pieces. The Arecibo Ob­ser­va­tory has been look­ing for ex­trater­res­tri­als since 1963.
