Re: So . . . . .

1. The energy doesn't run out it just gets spread progressively thinner (at least for light in a vacuum and gravity waves that's were your model falls short).

2. The same analogy applies to light and yet we manage to see distant galaxies.

3. It helps to have a very energetic source and a very sensitive detector.
