This composite color image shows the galaxy cluster MACS1149+2223, which creates a gravitational lens to magnify an extremely distant galaxy in the background (inset). The galaxy may have helped lift the fog of the early universe, scientists say. Image released Sept. 19, 2012. CREDIT: The CLASH team/The Space Telescope Science Institute
