SMA Image Contest 2009
The Submillimeter Array (SMA) announces its first Image Contest. Much like the
annual NRAO "Radio Astronomy Imaging Contest", the purpose of this contest is
to gather visually compelling images based on SMA data from the SMA user
community to be used for a variety of purposes, including public outreach.
