RACS artwork
The Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey (RACS), has been featured in recent ADAPs. Today's image shows a painting celebrating RACS by Wajarri artist Margaret Whitehurst, who describes her work: "My painting represents part of the Universe, being mapped from Wajarri country. The symbols in the bottom right-hand corner represent the Aboriginal people. The white boomerangs represent the ASKAP antenna dishes -- receiving the radio waves. There's "the emu in the sky", black holes in my invisible Universe. Included is the Southern Cross and [in the top left-hand corner] the Seven Sisters." (Image credit: Margaret Whitehurst)
