Radio doesn't, whereas TV waves do


Your definition is weak.

How do you think Nasa communicated with Apollo astronauts? Would you categorize that as "TV"?

As an example although an FM radio transmission tends to bounce on the atmosphere it can escape.

Nope. If that was true, all mass from a supernova would reach us as the same speed.


"mass" is not electromagnetic. A supernova emits all kinds of things that are not electromagnetic.

Second space is not an absolute vacuum. As I said it is not possible, not anywhere, to have a absolute vacuum. Actual outer space is full of all sorts of stuff which impacts anything moving through it.

Given a fixed, contained, uniform medium electromagnetic waves travel through that medium at a speed that reflects the medium. It will be slower than the absolute limit of the speed of light because the medium will have something in it.

No proton ever pretends to be a wave?


A proton is not "light". A proton is matter. It has mass. It is a particle. A traveling proton (and other particles) can exhibit wave like behavior.

Ocean waves are of course matter but they too exhibit wave like behavior.
