Peering around Cosmic Corners with Gravitational Lensing | Hubble

Peering around Cosmic Corners with Gravitational Lensing | Hubble

Hubblecast 70: The Hubble observing program Frontier Fields used the powerful magnifying properties of massive galaxy clusters to peer even deeper into the space around us. Hubblecast 70 takes a look at this phenomenon—known as gravitational lensing—exploring how it works, and how it can help us to uncover the secrets of the very distant Universe.
