In a vacuum there are no molecules or atoms to store energy, suppose you make such 
a vacuum and there is no radiation present, does this mean there is no energy?
Can you define temperature in this situation? What would happen if I put in a
thermometer or a substance?
Are there other ways of storing energy than trough molecules or radiation?
Sorry if it's a bit long but I'm really breaking my head on this...
