digitaltrends.com – While recent advancements have given the Hubble Space Telescope more power, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) just took photos of one of the farthest views into space yet — using something almost as simple as gravity.
As part of a three-year, 840-orbit program, Hubble recently took photos of a cluster of star systems called Abell S1063, identifying 16 new galaxies. The images show galaxies that were previously too distant to photograph. While there was definitely a pretty powerful telescope involved, the reason the Hubble was able to see so far isn’t from new tech but a theory as old as Einstein, because, well, the theory actually stems from Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
