Hubble Telescope Sees A Smiling Face In Space

NASA's Hubble telescope finds smiling face among colourful galaxies

The arc is caused by an effect known as gravitational lensing.

NASA revealed that the Hubble Telescope captured this image while exploring the space to know how new stars spring to life throughout the cosmos.

Hubble has the pointing accuracy of.007 arc seconds, which is like being able to shine a laser beam focused on Franklin D. Roosevelt's head on a dime roughly 200 miles away.

BHP forced to derail runaway train
In an effort to stop the runaway train, the company deliberately derailed it about 120km from BHP's Port Hedland mine operations. In 2017, BHP was ranked as the world's largest mining company and it primarily mines coal, copper, iron ore and petroleum.

NASA's Hubble telescope has just resumed scientific observations after a three-week shutdown. The image, which NASA says was snapped with one of the Hubble telescope's wide field cameras, shows a whole bunch of distant galaxies in all shapes and sizes - but one particular part of the image is bound to catch your eye. "The lower, arc-shaped galaxy has the characteristic shape of a galaxy that has been gravitationally lensed - its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to become distorted and stretched out of shape", wrote NASA on their website. The gravity of the nearby galaxies bends and magnifies the light coming from distant galaxies, making them look brighter and larger than they actually are.

When stars are born, they come out of giant clouds of gas, the so-called stellar nurseries. New stars are formed over the course of millions of years.

NASA hopes to analyze the luminosity, the size, and the rate of formation of stars in different stellar nurseries from various points in time throughout the universe.

Cameroon: Children among 81 people kidnapped from school in Bamenda
The video could not be independently verified, but parents said on social media they recognised their children in the recording. Cameroon's North-West and South-West regions have been hit by a secessionist rebellion in recent years.

The photo was published a few days after the Hubble Space Telescope had returned to its normal science operations following a gyroscope malfunction.

The Hubble telescope has sent a new picture with the "smile of the Universe".
