Abell 1689 is a cluster so massive, the light you’re seeing from it is totally bent and warped. From the constellation of Virgo, 2.2 billion light years away, you’re seeing the light in a sight as if it was a photo that was concaved and stretched out by the corners, and that’s the natural image. Isn’t astronomy cool, and wouldn’t it be awesome if you knew more than that? Not only would that be great, but having everybody learn something or anything about the heavens that surround us would be amazing. I want to live my life dedicated entirely to the stars, the planets, the black holes, entirely astronomy. However, I don’t want to live it all to myself, I want to share and give this knowledge away to all of you on this green, orange, and blue planet and let you see and know what I love. I plan to take on a career that will always have me involved with anything astronomy-related, I’ll be leading my path towards the field of Aerospace engineering as I plan to construct shuttles and satellites. With that success, I want to give back to the public. I’ll plan to give cities telescopes for any to operate, museums of astronomical accomplishments, and share the knowledge with schools. These are goals I have listed and that I WILL someday complete.
