Yeah, it's not looking good for Arecibo observatory, especially now that a second cable has snapped. The good news is that the complex part - the receivers themselves - are still untouched. The only bits broken are the dish itself, which is just metal. However, this is probably not the best time to ask for a bunch of money to fix a radio telescope.
Another is soon to break since the cable was on the same pylon the other cable busted. stress on the remaining cables increased exponentially from what it was originally loaded with when all cables were their, prepare for a catastrophic cascading effect in 3, 2, 1

In a Zoom call, Sveta said the crew and passengers had thought the cylinder might be discovered in 30 or 50 years and expressed shock it was found so quickly, McClory said.

Is that just the name of the place or they're just... being british about it?


British?

Report came back and it is decommissioned, salvage team will try to recover as much equipment as possible (probably to sell for scrap). Site is deemed unsafe with the structure ready to collapse at anytime.

Madagascan Flatid Leaf-Bug, Flatida rosea, Flatidae (fulgoroid planthoppers)

Like many planthoppers, nymphs of this species extrude waxy filaments from their abdomen that break off when grabbed by a predator as a method of defense.

The Arctic is getting greener, and it’s about as pretty as you might expect—vast stretches of coastal land positively glowing against cobalt seas. But all that green is in fact an alarm: Vegetation is growing more abundant as this region warms twice as fast as the rest of the planet. Northern landscapes are undergoing massive change, with potential consequences not just for the Arctic itself, but the world as a whole.

One group of researchers has been on a multiyear quest to understand that change on a fine scale. They’re combining satellite data, quadcopter measurements, and good old boots-on-the-frigid-ground fieldwork. We’re talking about labor like measuring individual leaves on plants to determine how much they’re growing, year after year. “So it kind of scales up from all of these little dramas of individual plants playing out, that then influence which plants exist on the landscape,” says Jeffrey Kerby, an ecologist at Aarhus University in Denmark and coauthor of a new paper from the team. “And when you spread that out over a huge area, it can have very consequential impacts on the carbon cycle.”
