Did you know that the gravitational force of a galaxy is powerful enough to distort the fabric of the space around it? Would you be surprised to learn that this gravitational effect is very useful for viewing galaxies that are further away, and behind, the ones that are easily viewable with Hubble? Learn more about gravitational lensing and how it works in today’s video from YouTube channel SpaceRip!
Thanks, AA. Things like this make me realize just how little I really know ... and how much farther behind I get as time goes on.
Ushindi, you are not getting further behind, there is just a lot more information to take in these days due to the newer technology gathering such a huge volume of data and such. ^_^
I could not imagine trying to keep up with it all myself... ~_^
