Houston's NRG Stadium and Astrodome


Lone Star Drones brings us this aerial view of Houston's NRG Stadium and the now-obsolete adjacent Astrodome.  Originally called Reliant Stadium, the retractable roof NRG opened in 2002 as the home of the Houston Texans of the National Football League.  Seating about 72k fans, it replaced the 60's era multipurpose Astrodome for football.  Once called the world's 8th Wonder, in the 1990's the Astrodome lost its pro football and baseball teams.  Protected by preservation statutes, it lies in an abandoned state.
