Hubble Peers into the Vast Distance

Gravitational lensing can help astronomers study objects that would otherwise be too faint or appear too small for us to view. When a large object distorts space with its immense gravitational field, it causes light from more distant galaxies to travel along altered and warped paths. It also amplifies the light, making it possible for us to observe and study its source.
