In a world first, Geoscience Australia has painted an Indigenous artwork on its satellite antenna as part of a major upgrade – making the Alice Springs antenna unique in more ways than one.

The upgraded Alice Springs antenna was commissioned today in a ceremony highlighting both the antenna's key role in the United States Landsat program, and the artwork painted on its surface that recognises the Arrernte people as traditional custodians of the land.
