Galaxy Cluster SDSS J1004+4112

The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of galaxy cluster SDSS J1004+4112 as part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The image is the first-ever picture of a single distant quasar lensed into five images and also shows a rich abundance of banana-like arcs from lends background galaxies and even a supernova.

This full-size Hubble image shows galaxy cluster SDSS J1004+4112 that was discovered as part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. It is one of the more distant clusters known (seven billion light-years, redshift z=0.68), and is seen when the Universe was half its present age. The image is the first-ever picture of a single distant quasar lensed into five images and also shows a rich abundance of banana-like arcs from lends background galaxies and even a supernova. Four of the five quasar images are seen as star-like images surrounding the center of the cluster. The fifth quasar image is embedded to the right of the core of the central galaxy in the cluster.

There is so much to discover and understand. It is amazing.
Yea, like who exactly is writing articles like this? Junior high students? Grammar and spelling should full well be a thing of the past no?
Yet you fail to leave a perfect display of proper writing skills. If you can’t read this article, proper grammar isn’t going to help you much.
Can I read one article where there isn’t a grammar and spell check snob?
Nothing wrong with grammar. Just because you don’t understand context and semantics doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with writing.
Nano brains entirely missing the point and arguing abt who’s more stupid while the mystery of the universe ROTFLIFAO at them.
Are one paragraph articles acceptable in journalism now a days?
Typo: ‘lends’ should presumably be ‘lensed’
