Astronomers observe four images of the same supernova using a cosmic lens

05 March 2015

Astronomers have for the first time observed a supernova multiply-imaged due to gravitational lensing. The light from the supernova is seen in four different images due to a cosmic phenomenon that causes light to be deflected by the
