Has anybody here actually seen the dish recently?. It has fungus on it and looks very poorly maintained. OK...Yes. We know that in a tropical climate. Strong sun in combination with sea air can make things look old awfully fast.

But, it's obvious they weren't maintaining the aesthetics of it.

Hopefully, Cornell will take care of that along with maintaining the most important part of the operation which is obviously the structural support of the dish which is in question.
