Photons lost in space

Just a quick dumb question for those Physics minds in-the-know.

All of the billions and billions of stars are emitting light, and other, energy constantly and continously (for the most part). Some of this we receive here on our nice planet earth. Obviously most of this tremendous amount of energy we never receive but is traveling to all of the other stars and planets in the Universe. What effect does all of this energy traveling or "photons lost in space" have on current theories of the Universe or does it not count much because it has no mass?
