Hubble to Capture galaxy with Gravitational Lens

Hubble Space Telescope shows fast-spinning disk shaped galaxy
     Hubble Space Telescope uses Gravitational Lens to Capture fast spinning Disk Galaxy. Gravity of a massive galaxy cluster MACS J2129-0741 brightens and magnifies the far distant galaxy in the background galaxy MACS2129-1 in the upper right corner of the image. Astronomers of NASA have made a amazing discovery of fast spinning disk shaped galaxy using power of natural lens of Hubble Space Telescope. These galaxy were called dead galaxies. Because they stopped forming stars before few billion years ago.
