This cluster is also a well-known gravitational lens.
On 2 March 2007, a team of astronomers reported the detection of comet galaxy in this cluster.  This galaxy is being ripped apart by the cluster’s gravitational field and harsh environment. The finding sheds light on the mysterious process by which gas-rich spiral-shaped galaxies might evolve into gas-poor irregular- or elliptical-shaped galaxies over billions of years.
