Giant Puerto Rico radio telescope collapses, following damage

阿雷西博天文台的大型设点望远镜,在半个多世纪的天文发现中发挥了关键作用,它先前在波多黎各损坏,并于周二完全倒塌。

The Arecibo Observatory, a huge and previously damaged radio telescope in Puerto Rico that played a key role in astronomical discoveries for more than half a century, completely collapsed on Tuesday.

望远镜900吨重的接收平台落在400英尺以下的反射盘上。

The telescope’s 900-ton receiver platform fell onto the reflector dish more than 400 feet below.

波多黎各气象学家阿达·蒙松(Ada Monzón)在当地电视台向美国境内其他伤心的波多黎各人传递这一毁灭性的消息时哭了起来。

Puerto Rican meteorologist Ada Monzón broke into tears on local TV as she delivered the devastating news to other heartbroken Puerto Ricans across the U.S. territory.

她用西班牙语说:“我必须用心告诉你,阿雷西博天文台倒了。”。“我们尽了一切努力挽救它。”

“I have to inform you, with my heart in hand, that the Arecibo Observatory collapsed,” she said in Spanish. “We made every attempt to save it.”
