IT’S OFFICIAL: ARECIBO RADIO TELESCOPE TO BE DEMOLISHED
Many people have been following the story of the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, and I'd like to thank all of you up front who sent me versions of this story, because frankly, this story has the distinct odor of some monkey business going on. For those interested, I have blogged three times about what I regard as the suspicious cable break at Arecibo, which caused damage to the giant reflecting dish, in the following blogs:
Now, however, it's official: the Arecibo radio telescope is, according to engineers, beyond repair, and a decision has been taken to demolish the facility completely, as it now poses a threat to anyone working there:
There's something here that still bothers me, and it's those initial pictures of the first "snapped" cable that I put in the first linked article above: the cable does not look like it failed, but rather that it was somehow cut and sabotaged, as my attempt to compare the partial failure of cables under stress from the old 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse (Galloping Gertie) seem to demonstrate. As this latest article states, Arecibo had undergone hurricanes, which presumably placed the cables under similar types of stress - if not to the same degree - as the infamous suspension bridge. Yet no similar failures resulted. True enough, according to some stories the Arecibo cables had been upgraded or replaced, and some articles suggest the newer cables were alloyed faultily. But nonetheless, that faulty alloying shouldn't result in what we see in the pictures of that first cable failure indicating a single plane of failure in many instances. Which leaves, once again, a cut, whether by nanothermite deliberately placed on the cable, or by some other means.
In the third article above, I noted that the covid planscamdemic had unusually resulted in the shut-down of hundreds of telescopes and radio telescopes around the world, almost as if "someone" did not want astronomers "seeing something", and particularly Arecibo. To add a little more grist to this mill of high octane speculation, the only remaining radio telescope dish of similar (actually, larger) size is now located in - you guessed it - China. (See Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope)
So the USA has lost Arecibo, leaving only China with such a large dish. I don't know about you, but color me "highly suspicious." As I put it in yet another blog (See https://gizadeathstar.com/2020/09/c-seti-means-china-seti-looking-for-extraterrestrials-in-china/):
I've been entertaining the idea that there may be some sort of covert warfare going on between the USA and China, and that the floods in China, and the covid narrative, may be components of that warfare. So here's today's high octane speculation. What if there was a suspicious "signal like" transmission, that only the very largest radio telescopes, such as the one in southwestern China, or Puerto Rico's Arecibo, was able to pick up? And what if one, or the other party in this covert warfare wanted to prevent its opposite number from hearing it? What would one do?
Why, one would find a way to shut down the opponent's facility.
Yes, I know... it's out there and totally wild... unless, of course, the Chinese telescope experiences an accident...
So what has my suspicion meter in the red zone today? Just this: in reviewing the many versions of the stories that the readership of this site kindly sent me, not one of them mentions any plans or possibility that the Arecibo facility will be rebuilt...
... and that means I'm sticking with my original high octane speculation: someone wanted it gone, and for us to be "blind." The question is, why, and I suspect we might have to wait a few years for that to become clear, so keep your eyes peeled...
See you on the flip side...
