Dr. Gates lead us into the world of Einstein's telescope, where a radical new technique known as gravitational lensing allows scientists to use space itself as a telescope. The warps and dimples in Einstein's audacious description of space and time act as a giant cosmic lens allowing people to see the invisible. With Einstein's telescope, we find planets around other stars, magnify distant galaxies into view, map out dark matter, trace the imprint of dark energy on our expanding and evolving cosmos and maybe answer the question, “What is the universe made of?”
