When you're smiling, the whole universe smiles with you.


God just sent us an emoji. (via NASA)

The Hubble Space Telescope spotted this image of a friendly little guy they call the SDSS J1038+4849 galaxy cluster. If I were going to name him, I'd go with "Buddy," but to each his own. He's got galaxies for eyes, an Einstein ring for a smile, and he's just precious. They say his appearance is due to an effect they call gravitational lensing, but I like to think the Hubble told him to say "cheese."

Finally, science isn't a bummer!
