ALIEN SEARCH HALTED
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.
