First, it's good to see you back again. And second....here is what you sould be saying. The things you wrote aren't really correct. Einstien and Newton's equations are not anywhere close to being the same equation. First of all, F=MA is an equation for FORCE...NOT POWER....and yes, you are correct about Force being equal to mass times acceleration. Einstien's equations are more related to Newton's gravitational equations than anything else. And Einstien was correct, he made Newtonian physics almost obsolete, even though it is still taught in school. Newton's equations are ONLY relative here on earth, no where else do they work as well, Einstien's are relative EVERYWHERE.

About those radio waves moving in space. The reason they are able to go through space is because they are a form of electromagnetic radiation. Look it up, you need a re-fresher course. Electromagnetic radiation needs NO material to pass through in order to move, it moves.....in the exact same way that light moves through space. And there is some so called material in light, it contains both matter and wave-like characteristics.

For the last time, LIGHT IS CONSTANT IN SPACE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Red-shifting occurs because an object, which throws off light, is moving away from us, if it were moving toward us, blue-shifting would occur. I suggest you read about the doplar effect too.

Radio waves move at the SAME speed as light, all electromagnetic radiation moves at the speed of light.

Great seeing you again....
