  1. I believe a great way to raise funds for the new “Arecidos” would be to sell/auction off pieces of the dish material, or other structures. What space/astronomy nerd would not want a piece of history like that to hang on your wall or put on a shelf/desk?! I would certainly spend money for that!
    Make it so!
    Thanks!
