Caption

Dead star warping light of red star. Computer illustration showing an ultra-dense dead star, known as a white dwarf, passing in front of a small red star. As the white dwarf crosses in front, its gravity is so great that it bends and magnifies the light of the red star, similar to using a lens. NASA's Kepler space telescope detected this effect, called gravitational lensing, by measuring a strangely subtle dip in the star's brightness.
