It seems that most of the universe is made up of mysterious ingredients which we cannot see directly. Dr Bridle describes in pictures ‘gravitational lensing’, the bending of light by gravity, which is predicted by Einstein’s General Relativity. Dr Bridle will review the current observations and upcoming surveys.
