Goolag's "light-in-the-box" question provoked this question, but I thought it might be worthy of its own thread.How much electromagnetic radiation (light, radio, etc.) can pass through a volume of space? Is there some theoretical limit at which spacetime "saturates" (for want of a better word), or is there no known limit?
LightArrow - take a look at my rough attempt in the Light in a Box Thread http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=39533.msg357146#msg357146Seems too obvious and I am sure I have committed a huge howler
I think I've invented a new interstellar bomb by the sounds of it - if ever we go to war with a nearby solar system we could fire these boxes off at the star - with the correct timings, the boxes would arrive at the target, having absorbed enough light to collapse in black holes with devasting effect.
