The gravitation of this field, mostly which scientists believe is from a dark matter. This illuminates space and amplifys the energy that comes from the distant galaxies behind it. The Hubble telescope could register the effect of gravity, so it would be a unique chance for Astronomers to discover deep space.

NASA says, observing galaxy clusters like Abell 3322, located in the constellation of the Pictor (Pictor) at about 2.6 billion light-years from Earth, can give us better understanding of dark and ordinary phenomena. It’ll also help to take advantage of powerful gravitational telescopes to magnify space, too.

To get this image in the Hubble telescope, two instruments were used: the wide field camera 3 (WFC3) and the advanced camera for surveys (ACS). The first is capable of registering electromagnetic radiation from ultraviolet to visible light. The second was designed to study the large areas of the sky at various wavelengths, with 10 times greater efficiency than his predecessor.

Understanding the location of gravitational lenses such as Abel 3322 will improve the future observations, not only with the Hubble Telescope, but also with the James Webb Space Telescope. These discoveries illustrate the elusive role space telescopes play in the expansion of our horizons and understanding the universe.
