What is it exactly that makes light 'bend' as it travels through space? I agree that any solid object in motion is subject to the effects of gravity; but if light has no mass, how can light be said to bend as it travels through space?

Could you quote the book or article off the web that says light bends?
There are several types of bending.

Robbity, you lazy, ignorant, trolling assh0le.

Light doesn't bend, space does. Simple as that.

So gravity is affecting/warping space, and as light travels along this natural path it 'appears' to bend? Like light refracting as it travels through water?

Light bends only when there is speed change in eg water.
As light is carried by space, it will follow eventually curved space in eg near black hole.

Wrong;- photons have invariant velocity, please remove lodged crayon from brain and read about photonic absorption and re-emission jazz ..... cretin!

Check out "refraction".

It's because dual nature of space-ether where energy flows.
Bryslon
That's why light regardless not having mass is still behaving like both particle and wave?
Panimaju?

Thanks for the replies, everyone...I think I have some 'further reading' to do
