>>> astrodome billed as the 8th wonder of the world when it opened when lbj was president in 1965 now abandoned. it hosted its last major league game in 1999 . it is now referred to as the lonely landmark. the b problem now is how much it would cost to blow it up or take it down. $29 million for starters. just to put up a parking lot. so there it will stay for the time being.
