Artist's Conception of Gravitational Lensing

Caption: This is an artist's impression of one of the South Pole Telescope-discovered sources based on observation by ALMA and Hubble Space Telescope. The massive central galaxy (in blue, seen by HST) bends the light of a more distant, submillimeter-bright galaxy, forming a ring-like image of the background galaxy which is observed by ALMA (red).
