What will be built on the site of the giant radio telescope?

(ORDO NEWS) — The famous Arecibo giant radio telescope, located in Puerto Rico, will not be restored (it was badly damaged by a hurricane in 2020).

However, a holy place does not happen empty, therefore, an educational center will be created in the space occupied by Arecibo, which will allow local youth to join the development of modern technologies.

Last week, the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States already accepted a $5 million proposal to build a new educational center on the site of the radio telescope, which will not only give young people access to knowledge (it was decided to focus on engineering and mathematics), but will also create conditions for the employment of young people in relevant sectors.
