: One thing I've always wondered, Nothing with mass can : go the speed of light...right? : Ok, so supposedly photons don't have mass, if they did : it would take an infinite amount of energy to make : them go the speed of light..right? : So, then if photons do not have mass, how is it that : gravity effects them? You know like, blackholes : have such strong gravity that not even light can : escape, stars bend light the goes around them and : so forth... : Someone please explain this to me... : Thanks in advance.

Light is affected by the fabric of time/space. it "bends" or follows how gravity affects time.
