SRI International Update on Arecibo Observatory

MENLO PARK, Calif. September 28, 2017 – Operations at Arecibo Observatory are suspended, but we are beginning to perform tests of Observatory instrumentation. Physical access to the Observatory has been restored and staff are reporting to work daily and are involved in damage assessment of facilities and equipment. Initial evaluations indicate that damage to the telescope and supporting infrastructure is far less than anticipated. We will provide further updates once we have more information.
