Abstract: Measurements of the properties of gravitational lenses have the power to tell us what sort of universe we live in. The brightest known radio Einstein ring/gravitational lens PKS 1830-211, whilst obscured by our Galaxy at optical wavelengths, has recently provided a lensing galaxy redshift of 0.89 through the detection of molecular absorption in the millimetre waveband.
