What exactly is a wormhole?

What exactly is a wormhole?

  1. Hi Young Scientist :).
    You may, if you travelled as a protected, ‘virtual astronaut’ find yourself in a ‘wormhole’ leading to an alternative existence!
    A wormhole is the name given to a special kind of shortcut through space that takes virtually no time at all! There is, of course, a lot of detailed information to take in to describe the idea more clearly but briefly a ‘wormhole’ may be likened to the straight joint that could be made between two cones (or funnels with their pipes cut off), which very briefly join at their points to create a short link between different ‘alternative’ universes. Now imagine the normal path being much, much longer and you will realise how a ‘wormhole’ route could be a very quick way indeed from the open end of one (our universe) to the open end of the other cone ( a parallel universe?). Some Scientists have suggested that a ‘Parallel Universe’ would exist on the other side i.e. if an astronaut emerged from the ‘mouth’ of the opposite cone. These combinations have been likened to a ‘black hole’ joining to the opposite form, a ‘white hole’. What that environment would contain is open to speculation. This is part of the endless search for greater understanding that scientists pursue and we may join if we wish!
    I hope this brief description gives enough of a picture …
    Good Luck,
