A treasure trove of wonders! With bright stars from the Milky Way sparkling in the foreground to the magnificent swirls of several spiral galaxies and a glowing assortment of objects at the center, take a look at all that makes up this massive galaxy cluster in this new image from the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble). Such clusters are the biggest objects in the universe that are held together by gravity and can contain thousands of galaxies of all shapes and sizes. Typically, they have a mass of about one million billion times the mass of the Sun — unimaginably huge! Their incredible mass makes clusters very useful natural tools to test theories in astronomy, such as Einstein’s theory of general relativity. This tells us that objects with mass warp the fabric of space-time around them; the more massive the object, the greater the distortion. An enormous galaxy cluster like this one therefore has a huge influence on the space-time around it, even distorting the light from more distant galaxies to change a galaxy’s apparent shape, creating multiple images, and amplifying the galaxy’s light — a phenomenon called gravitational lensing.

iraqies are protesting against the Government since yesterday, it was a peaceful protest until the governments started arresting them and killing them, and cut off the Internet and all ways of connection inside iraq, and The Iraqi media is controlled by the government too ,so nobody knows what's going to happen today, Iraqi Army is facing the protesters with guns, we need the government to lift the Internet ban from the people so we can know what's going on and make sure they're safe , need help #save_the_iraqi_people

Put your fingers on your eyes as you see space without stars..

@alonsodiazuna there is a galaxy void of dark matter which is pretty dope

@lrsbzrkv

Это мечта.....каждого ребёнка.... Полететь к звёздам.....

@cenz_official Okay well if you want to point at God and say that he is the answer for everything you do not understand then so be it. But it is scientifically proven that every planet, star etc in space moves in orbit around something. Nothing is ever stationary in space, meaning everything is also rotating as well orbiting something no matter how fast that be. You can’t say any of this is fake and unscientific if you can LITERALLY see it happening with your own eyes. You can believe that ‘God’ has all the answers if you want but don’t let it cloud your vision between what YOU want the truth to be and what IS ALREADY proven to be true.

@csbeverly1

@alonsodiazuna making comments like this make you appear unintelligent and weak in your beliefs. Believe in no God if you want, but don't be obnoxious about it. Perhaps make a comment of your own, like "through science look at what we have achieved!" why bother putting someone else down? Even more so, if you see yourself as the more intelligent, why bother commenting with lesser people anyway? Who believes so strongly against God that he trolls Instagram in search of comments such as these? Let people enjoy things.

@cenz_official

@jack_runciman_ let me ask you a question. Is the earth moving or are the clouds moving. Your not dum you know the clouds are moving. So why is it when it comes to the sun moon and stars the earth is moving. Its not. Everything moves but the earth. Believe what you want. Earth doesnt move God made the Earth firm and immovable. I believe this is scientifically accurate. God is not only a scientist hes has infinite wisdom he knows everything. He made everything. Theres a thin line between education and indoctrination.

@cenz_official

@medot_aje its too high risk to fake it again. Its just a hollywood set in nevada most likly area 51. You can alter speed and make them look like they are wobbling. Just a hollywood set. They never went in the 1960s they faked it.
