Astronomers have discovered one of the most distant planets known, a gas giant about 13,000 light-years from Earth, called OGLE-2014-BLG-0124L. The planet was discovered using a technique called microlensing, and the help of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment, or OGLE. In this artist's illustration, planets discovered with microlensing are shown in yellow. The farthest lies in the center of our galaxy, 25,000 light-years away.

Most of the known exoplanets, numbering in the thousands, have been discovered by NASA's Kepler space telescope, which uses a different strategy called the transit method. Kepler's cone-shaped field of view is shown in pink/orange. Ground-based telescopes, which use the transit and other planet-hunting methods, have discovered many exoplanets close to home, as shown by the pink/orange circle around the sun.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Spacecraft operations are based at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Littleton, Colorado. Data are archived at the Infrared Science Archive housed at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.

I was always taught that light does not bend even with intense gravitational forces.once light is on course nothing can alter its direction,only slow it fractionally,like going through glass etc.so I do not grasp this concept of micro lensing,I really don't see how this is possible,and its another reason why black holes cannot exist in the standard model.this is another einstinian concept,through Eddington which has no value.if you can grasp the concept of diffuse light separation and how it might become extremely weak but equally collectively become a gravitational force then we are getting somewhere.

Now, you need to know, lights can be bend by heavy gravitational power. Even it can caught light.

mikeyo, I was taught gravity bends space and light travels along the bent path of space like a car travels on a banked curve. The driver steers straight but the car follows the curve of the bank.

Robert, dont bother, dude's a electric universe fanatic and he trolls this site with 2 of his other buddies from the cult of plasmatron.. hes in denial when it comes to proven physics and such, cuz u know, conspiracy theories..
