NASA's Hubble Telescope finds smiling face in space

The Hubble Space Telescope captured a friendly face in space. Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3 is capable of seeing distant galaxies in unparalleled resolution, yet, high enough to locate and study regions where new stars are forming. It showed a number of bright lights in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Two yellow-hued blobs hang atop a sweeping arc of light, NASA said in a statement.

The arc of light, NASA says, is due to the light passing a massive gravity source, causing it to bend. "Its light passed close to a massive object on the way to us, with the result that it became distorted and stretched", reported NASA astronomers.

Hubble has taken a few photos showcasing banana-shaped arcs of light from across the universe. Because of its position, the space telescope can see and capture the effect, which cannot be detected by ground-based observatories.

Scientists from NASA said that with the assistance of the powerful Hubble telescope, they are able to get some pretty interesting information that is message from space.

Meanwhile, the Manchester United attacking unit is at full strength, with Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard now fully fit. Ander Herrera had been particularly influential after being introduced as a substitute for the second half.

When stars are born, they come out of giant clouds of gas, the so-called stellar nurseries. The lifetime of the young stars is very small in astronomical terms - just a few million years.

Recently, using the data collected by Hubble and Kepler telescope, a team of researchers at the Columbia University found the evidence of the first moon outside the solar system.

Hubble Space Telescope returned to normal operations on October 26 after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope that had replaced a failed one three weeks earlier.
