Hubble Captures Massive Galaxy Cluster In Stunning Detail

From tracing close interactions between galaxies to using the cluster as a lens through which to view distant objects, high-quality images of these clusters provide valuable insight. Abell 370 is one of the very first galaxy clusters in which astronomers observed the phenomenon of gravitational lensing, the warping of spacetime by the cluster's gravitational field that distorts the light from galaxies lying far behind it.

"Much like the eclectic group of space rebels in the upcoming film 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2', NASAs Hubble Space Telescope has some wonderful superpowers, specifically when it comes to observing innumerable galaxies flung across time and space", NASA officials said in a statement that was published along with some incredible new views of galaxies in deep space. But huge galaxy clusters like Abell 370 contain hundreds of galaxies or more, many of which reside in their dense centers. But as rendered by the Hubble Space Telescope, the cosmos appears crowded.

Moto Z2 Play will be thinner with a smaller battery
While the traditional tablet market is shrinking, most smartphone makers continue to develop and sell this type of mobile devices. Motorola is plotting a return to the tablet scene with the launch of a new premium slate running Android, according to reports.

This composite view from Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys shows hundreds of galaxies in the cluster, which is 6 billion light-years away in the constellation Cetus. That's a lot of galaxies to be guarding, and just in this one cluster! These far-flung galaxies are too faint for Hubble to see directly. The bluish objects are spiral galaxies, like the Milky Way, and are home to younger stars, a statement on NASA's website said. The collective gravity of all the stars and other matter trapped inside the cluster warps space and affects light traveling through the cluster, toward Earth.

They now estimate there are around two trillion galaxies in the universe.

NSA collected 151M phone records in 2016, despite law change
The report shows that in 2016 the NSA received warrants to collect such information on only 46 terrorism suspects. And we should find out what the hell is going on, ' he said.

The longest streak in the image is the most dramatic display of lensing: there are four separate images of the single galaxy as the stretches and bends in an arc. Along with the clusters, "parallel fields" or regions of space adjacent to the clusters - seemingly sparse - were also imaged with the same exposure that provided a deep look into the early universe.

But thanks to gravity, scientists were able to magnify light of those galaxies in what's referred to as a "gravitational lensing effect".

Trump tax plan: Relief for his voters but lots of unknowns
Yet during an interview on Thursday's Today show, Mnuchin was back to claiming that the plan "is about a middle-income tax cut". Host Savannah Guthrie followed up by pointing out a statement Mnuchin made yesterday at the White House.
