The Spitzer Space telescope symbolises looking for and discovering things, which is what Avahi does. The A is of course for Avahi. The label beneath “explains” this. That the telescope rests atop the Avahi ‘A’ symbolises two things: Avahi supports discovery, the fact that the ’scope is in orbit and above the ‘A’ is a pun on ‘hi’/‘high’. That it all stands on a platform symbolises both its use as a platform for other things, and its cross-platform nature.
