Can worm holes be used for travel?
In a nutshell, theoretically yes. This is an
artist's rendition of a wormhole from New York to the Sahara Desert. If you could see a
wormhole, it would probably be seen as a sphere with somewhere else in it. The
main problem is that wormholes require negative energy. This is not antimatter,
but energy that has an amplitude of less than zero. It seems to defy physics,
but it does not. Unfortunately for us travelers, we have no way of generating
this negative energy necessary.
Using "standard", that is, positive energy only, you can bend the
fabric of space all you want, if you have enough of it. But to actually join two
points together you need negative energy. Once you join these points together,
you have formed a wormhole. No one know if you would be able to travel through
it and survive, but based on the above picture shows what a wormhole might
