Gravitational Lens -- A gravitational lens is formed when the light from a very distant, bright object (such as a quasar) is "bent" around a massive object (such as a massive galaxy) between the bright object and the viewer. The process is known as gravitational lensing, and was one of the predictions made by Einstein's general relativity. Description In a gravitational lens, the gravity from the massive object bends light as a lens might. As a result, the path of the light from a...

dapifer
  • One who brings meat to the table; hence, in some countries, the official title of the grand master or steward of the king's or a nobleman's household.
The word 'dapifer' comes from Latin roots meaning 'feast' and 'bearer'.
