Accelerating Universe

Party Like The Universe

You owe it to yourself to see this BIG VERSION Click and click again, remember!

Galaxies on the back-drop of light bend by gravitational lenses. This is the party where ALL THE ACTION is! Can't you see? Both dark energy and dark matter are joining.

Seriously, this is the best view of the universe thus far - done by COSMOS with the help of Hubble (for the first time). Due to it's shear size (mass), galaxies bend the light in what we call gravitational lenses. It enable us to see deep into space and learn more about how the universe is accelerating. I love acceleration!
