A better view of the early universe

When we look at galaxies far, far away, we don't see them as they are today. We see them as they were a long time ago, because their light takes a while to reach us. These images could easily fade on their epic journey, but "natural telescopes" in their path enable astronomers to study some of these postcards from the distant past.
