- Ask A Spaceman - #72 How does gravity make a lens?
How does gravity bend the path of light? Does it seriously act like a lens or is that just a metaphor? What does it take, and how do we know? What can we learn from this strange physics? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
