The Ancient Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan is in Danger of Collapsing

Back in November 2013, I climbed on top of the amazing Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan.

And it may have been the last time!

Nothing lasts forever, and the Pyramid of the Sun in Mexico is no exception. Recent research suggests that this massive structure, built in the city of Teotihuican, is in danger of collapsing.

This is sad and preoccupating! When scientists scanned the inside of the pyramid, they found a giant pile of dust. The 3 million tons of stone that make up the pyramid are supported by little more than soil, and one side of the soil is much less stable than the other.

How long the pyramid has left is a question for future research and a lot of debate. So, if you’d like to visit, might want to start planning a trip.
