A number of telescopes, government agencies, shut down amid increased asteroid threat

Defying all logic, a number of telescopes and observatories around the world remain closed amid the coronavirus pandemic while the impact risk of near-earth Earthbound objects remains at an all-time high.

Over 100 telescopes have been reported to have been shut down in a move that virtually makes no sense and now one of the world’s largest radio telescopes named the Arecibo Observatory has been rendered inoperable after sustaining damage after cable unexpectedly snapped creating about a 100-foot long gash in the dish itself, furthering fueling the problem.

“We have a team of experts assessing the situation,” said Arecibo Observatory director Francisco Cordovain. We wish to restore “the facility to full operations as soon as possible.”
