Einstein rings

Time for some science! 🙂

This is pretty exciting cosmological stuff…

“Images from the Hubble telescope reveal eight new Einstein rings, joining only three others previously known. Einstein rings are pairs of galaxies, with a foreground galaxy bending the light of a background galaxy into a ring by gravitational effects. The ring helps astronomers precisely estimate the mass of the foreground galaxy.”

Will be exciting to see what the new data will reveal about the formation of galaxies and our universe.
