 重力透镜效应 Explanation:http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/引力透镜 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_lensing A gravitational lens is formed when the light from a very distant, bright source (such as a quasar) is "bent" around a massive object (such as a cluster of galaxies) between the source object and the observer. The process is known as gravitational lensing, and is one of the predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. --------------------------------------------------Note added at 12 mins (2008-02-18 05:28:27 GMT)--------------------------------------------------由于“重力透镜效应”(gravitational lensing) 的发生，所以才有“重力透镜”(gravitational lens) 的现象。两者的不同在于 "The process is known as gravitational lensing." 这句话上。--------------------------------------------------Note added at 15 mins (2008-02-18 05:31:31 GMT)--------------------------------------------------有人说“引力”，有人说“重力”，两者所指的是同一个自然现象。

A gravitational lens is formed when the light from a very distant, bright source (such as a quasar) is "bent" around a massive object (such as a cluster of galaxies) between the source object and the observer. The process is known as gravitational lensing, and is one of the predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.
