: My 10 year old niece has a science question from her teacher. Does gravity affect light, and can it be bent? : Any help would be great. You, physically, cannot bend light, yet if light is passing a mass of great quantity, the mass of the light will be accelerated by the large mass, and the light will be in the direction of the mass. The amount of bend in the beam of light may not be notible, but there will always be a slight bend in the light if it is being accelerated by another mass.
