Astronomers discover one of the brightest galaxies known

La Laguna, Spain (SPX) Jul 17, 2017 According to Einstein's theory of General Relativity when a ray of light passes close to a very massive object, the gravity of the object attracts the photons and deviates them from their intial path. This phenomenon, known as gravitational lensing, is comparable to that produced by lenses on light rays, and acts as a sort of magnifier, changing the size and intensity of the apparent image

Looking back in time to see the birth of ancient stars

With the help of gravitational lensing and complex calculations, astronomers can see stars forming in the early universe.
