Electric Field in cosmos

  1. Oct 16, 2014 #1
    For this situation, we consider light as an electromagnetic field travelling in x,y and z coordinate of space (cosmos) and electromagnetic fields are produced by oscillating electric and magnetic field.
    So cant there be such a similar EM field as proposed by Micheal Faraday???

    What Faraday proposed is the EM Field - it was codified by Maxwell.
