Light rays from a supernova bent by the curvature of space-time around a galaxy

Light rays from a supernova bent by the curvature of space-time around a galaxyAstronomers have detected for the first time multiple images from a gravitationally lensed Type Ia supernova. The new observations suggest promising new avenues for the study of the accelerated expansion of the universe, gravity and distribution of dark matter in the universe.Astronomers have detected for the first time multiple images from a gravitationally lensed Type Ia supernova.
