1 WHAT IS LIGHT? Most of our information about the universe has been obtained through the analysis of starlight. To explain how starlight travels across trillions of kilometers of empty space to waiting telescopes, astronomers picture light as a form of wave motion. A wave is a rising and falling disturbance that transports energy from a source to a receiver without the actual transfer of material. Wave motion is clearly observable in the ocean. During storms, crashing ocean waves vividly reveal the energy they carry.
