IANAPh, but the article "Endless, Boundless Universe"
by (apparently very famous) Grote Reber at least made
me think of aether -- not as a substance that facilitates
the propagation of light, but rather as a substance that 
light can't avoid travelling through.  (:

"This background appears to be radiation from an electron gas 
pervading intergalactic space. At 144 metres wavelength the 
gas becomes opaque at about 330 megaparsecs. The gas has a 
density of about 0.01 electron per cubic centimetre. The 
electrons must have some energy input to replace the energy 
lost by radiation and maintain equilibrium. This puzzle 
seemed unexplainable until I had the happy thought that the 
energy going into these electrons might be energy lost by 
light photons during their travel through intergalactic space. 

Further consideration disclosed the most likely phenomenon as 
Compton transitions[20]. Calculation showed that the suggestion 
of Shelton[11] was tenable. Also, perhaps, here was the kind of 
thing Hubble might be looking for. The electrons in intergalactic 
space act as transducers of energy from light waves to hectometre 
waves. These are absorbed by ionized hydrogen gas clouds within 
the galaxies. The clouds are building blocks for making stars. 
Thus the light energy from old hot stars is recycled into unborn 
stars. "
