Astronomy took a swift kick in the balls last week, Probably should have spent more money on PM.

Here is more info. They have had concerns and issues for a while now. Looks like the engineers were not on point when they did the math on the cable strength, or there was more corrosion than they expected.

These two men were seen entering it before the collapse.

I was working in PR for 2 months back in 2004/05 and got to visit that site. Was it still operational before the collapse? I thought it was just a tourist attraction by now
