I Gravitational lensing - latest

  1. Aug 2, 2017 #1
    Hello, I'm fascinated by gravitational lensing and would like to know what is the latest in this area - I mean the latest interesting research that lensing is used for, to help understand something or suchlike. Thanks.

    As far as I know, gravitational lensing isn't really something that people make a point of researching.
    It just happens, and GR explains it, (and predicted it).
    There are many examples of gravitational lensing, a lot of of them were discovered accidentally by telescopes looking for something else.
    It does enable us to get images of galaxies much further away, but they aren't particular different to closer ones.
