Does light have mass??? Of corse not? However I was thinking about the hizen-burg (I'm not a good speller) wave-particle relation. For example an apple has mass and wave properties. We see the particle side more than the wave side but it is there. An electron has mass and paritle nature. We see mostly the wave side. My point is that a photon behaves like a particle and a wave. Maybe a photon has mass but so little we can't detect it.....Maybe not. Does any one know of the sure test that proved without a shadow of a dought that a photon has no mass. Or does it relate to the zero rest mass and apparnt mass with its velocity....
