With the help of an automated supernova-hunting pipeline and a galaxy sitting 2 billion light years away from Earth that's acting as a "magnifying glass,'' astronomers have captured multiple images of a Type Ia supernova-the brilliant explosion of a star-appearing in four different locations on the sky. So far this is the only Type Ia discovered that has exhibited this effect. This phenomenon called 'gravitational lensing' is an effect of Einstein's Theory of Relativity-mass bends light. This...
