WHAT ARE THEY?
WHAT ARE WORMHOLES? WORMHOLES ARE HYPOTHETICAL OBJECTS THAT PROVIDE THE POSSIBILITY OF TIME TRAVELING AND TELEPORTATION BEHOLD HOW DO WE KNOW
THEY ARE REAL? WELL.... There is no experimental evidence, but Einstein’s theory of relativity suggests the possibility that wormholes exist. There is debate about whether wormholes can allow us to travel through time. The theory of relativity explains how wormholes can hypothetically allow time travel. It says that time passes more slowly for a highly accelerated body, so if one end of a wormhole was accelerated almost to the speed of light, while the other was stationary, then a person entering the stationary hole would emerge in the past. HOWEVER Wormholes are tunnels of strong gravity and the throat would collapse from the gravity. To stabilize them, scientists would need negative energy and matter. Negative matter is lighter than nothing and repels bodies; despite attempts, it has not been proven to exist. Though it may be somewhere, it would likely be in DEEP SPACE Even if we were to find negative matter/energy, the problem is manipulating it. For example, to open a meter-wide wormhole, one would need the negative energy around the mass of Jupiter -- except it would be negative mass. CONCLUSION? It's highly unlikely we will be able to time travel. ...maybe one day, we will achieve the technology A short video about wormholes The End~ Bibliography http://discovermagazine.com/2008/mar/teleportation-very-possible-next-up-time-travel#.UOtzxG_BE3g http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-wormhole.htm "Wormholes."
