Hubble Captures 'Happy Face' of Universe

A smiling lens

Hubble Takes a Amazing Picture which seems like Happy Face in the Space.

Of course, this is neither a miracle nor a edited picture.

The reason behind this 'Happy face' is very Complex Phenomena called Gravitational Lensing. The Eyes of the face are two Galaxies but Face's smile is due to gravity. Gravitational lensing is one of the most fascinating thing in Physics and astronomy.

This picture shows the true power of gravity. The gravity of these massive galaxies are so intense that they even distort the space-time create this amazing lens effect. The light itself distorted and gives the magnified view of galaxies.

Some astronomer believes that it is because of Dark matter, an unknown matter which is yet to be discover. These images are the strong evidence of dark matter but further research and experiments are needed to entirely prove their existence.

Hubble takes many images which shows gravitational lensing



  1. I never hear of it before. I would like to see it in the sky and say hi :)

  2. Amazing - space is like a never-ending treasure trove of new toys to play with.

  3. Probably a little too trivial for your blog, but saw these and couldn't resist sharing :-)

  4. I think it's the maker of what I saw on FB.

  5. Reblogged this on R. P. Last and commented:
    The universe smiles on us...

  6. How amazing is that? The Universe is an; incerdible entity, we forget that there's more than us, sometimes :D
