Occasionally, astronomers find an extraordinary "lensing galaxy" that can enhance light like a telescope from even deeper reaches of universe - brightening and magnifying background galaxies up to 30 times. Prof. Gregory Rudnick, an astronomer at KU, is part of a team that has detected the most-distant-known example of a lensing galaxy - located some 9.5 billion light years away from Earth (press release). Their findings have just been published in Astrophysical Journal Letters.
