Ok, this may be a stupid question, it may not. Why can't you see light in Space? I imagine that you can see the stars, even the sun, but, the sun lights up an entire half of our planet daily so why is it that it doesn't light up Space? I mean the thang is a huge ball of energy and light so why is it that Space is dark and not lite up the way Earth is? Does it have something to do with the atmosphere?

You are not replying so iam now telling you the answer . light is not being seen in space because in space is nothing to disturb the light or to bend the light what i mean is that whenever you swtich on your torch then in front of the torch mouth dust particles will be seen it is because dust particles dsturb the light that disturbances reflected to our eyes and we see those particles but in space we cannot see electromagnetic waves because in space their is nothing to disturb light accept planets, asteroids, comet or meteorites

What are you talking about?

Of course you can see light in space.

Even when this planet turns away from the light of the Sun, you can still see other stars and our moon.

If you went on board a spacecraft you would see light from everywhere in the universe.

What, exactly, do you not understand?

Take no notice of naman1, he is an idiot.
