The fact that we're 'seeing' this radiation is proof that it's moving through space, right? It isn't just loitering around in our vicinity with nothing better to do. So the radiation we saw last week must now be gone forever. It sounds like this radiation must have been tavelling past us and 'disappearing forever' for the last umpteen billion years. why is it STIIL travelling past us in a way that we can register with instruments?
It's true that the radiation is constantly on the move. However, that radiation is travelling in all directions at very nearly the same rate. As many photons of this radiation are entering any given cubic meter of space as are leaving it. So there is always radiation present to measure.
