Lumeniferous aether, Physics

lumeniferous aether:

A substance, that filled all the empty spaces among matter, which was utilized to describe what medium light was "waving" in. it now has been discredited, as Maxwell's equations imply that electromagnetic radiation can propagate into a vacuum, as they are disturbances in the electromagnetic field instead of traditional waves in some substance, like water waves.
