NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has captured the fabric of space-time being warped.
In an image captured by the observatory’s NIRCam instrument, distant galaxies are magnified and warped due to an effect called gravitational lensing.

The lensing galaxy cluster, known as SDSS J1226+2149, lies at a distance of around 6.3 billion light-years from Earth in the constellation Coma Berenices.
