La foto más nítida de la Tierra jamás tomada. La imagen ha sido realizada por el satélite ruso Elektro-L en una sola toma. Es la fotografía con mayor resolución jamás tomada de nuestro planeta. Ocupa más de 100 megas, tiene una resolución de 121 megapíxeles y cada uno de ellos representa algo más de 1 Km de la superficie terrestre.

"galaxy cluster abell 1689 is one of the most massive in the universe. in this image, it is seen to warp space. what you can see accounts for about 1% of the mass needed to make the bluish arcing images of background galaxies. most of the gravitational mass needed to warp space in this manner is in the form of mysterious dark matter." gravitational lenses are the coolest things ever.
