I think what your wondering is how electromagnetic waves travel through a vacuum.

well, that is where you have to realize that space/time continuum is a fabric that energy does travel upon. its a hard concept to grasp, but it is so.

space and time (albiet a vacuum) has dimension and thus influences what radiates through it. this is why light appears to curve when it passes through space that is influenced by gravitational forces. hence, gravity affects space/time which therefore affects energy traveling "upon" it.

I think i'm re-inventing the wheel here. :)
