Hubble space telescope has captured extraordinary glimpse of the universe’s brightest infrared galaxies with the help of natural magnifying lenses in space. NASA said that galaxy images was photographed with the support of amazing effect called gravitational lensing, captured unusual shaped objects with exotic patterns. Some of the odd shapes was also observed, which may have been produced due spectacular collisions between distanced galaxies.
Gravitational Lensing Magnified the Light from Distanced Galaxies
According to NASA, this lensing has given scientists the opportunity to research in detail that wouldn’t be otherwise possible. It’s not merely the glamour garish-looking spectacle of clusters of galaxy. Every year these galaxies are producing more than 10,000 and with their amazing brightness they shine with the power of 10 trillion to 100 trillion suns.
James Lowenthal, galaxy researcher and astronomers from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, spoke that these giant and ultra-luminous starburst galaxies are very rarely seen. Gravitational sensing made this possible to capture them so that you can observe every single detail that otherwise just impossible.
Lowenthal added, astronomers looking to study what’s powering these monsters and thanks to gravitational sensing enabling us to study them in detail. Galaxies span in different shapes and sizes and include trillions of stars or suns.
Natalie Batalha, NASA scientist, said that these kind of discoveries are really a great achievement as they change the whole scenario of how we see the universe. Now we can firmly say while looking at the sky that every single star has at least one planet.
