The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is like no other in the world. It is a stunning sight to behold stretching more than a thousand feet wide suspended above a sinkhole. It has been the scene of a James Bond movie as well as the Arecibo Message which is truly incredible. Sadly the observatory is falling apart and suspension cables have begun decimating the structure. This is a great story by the New York Times and author Dennis Overbye with some great pictures and you can find them HERE.
