HOUSTON -- From the highs of Houston sports to the lows of human misery after Hurricane Katrina, the Houston Astrodome has been home to history, but it’s now vacant and eroding before our eyes.

KHOU 11 News was recently granted access into the 47-year-old landmark, but not before signing forms releasing the county and Reliant from any sort of liability.
