Walking the dome

Nicholas Paggi, 24, was a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For some reason he decided to climb the university’s ‘Great Dome’. He broke the padlock preventing access to the 150 feet high dome. He slipped – and died from his injuries.

The dome is a landmark in Boston. In 2009 a group of students commemorated the anniversary of the Moon landing by hoisting a replica of the Apollo Lunar Modules to its roof.
