In the future will it be possible to create a usable wormhole if so how?

In the future will it be possible to create a usable wormhole if so how?

  1. it will be possible but only if you have a bottle of ketchup

  2. There are many wormholes, but those are only created by earthworms. If we were to create a wormhole, surely it would tear apart parts of space?

  3. Hi Young Scientist :).
    A ‘Wormhole’ is the term that scientists who study outer space, (or ‘Cosmologists’, as they are known) use to describe a kind of short-cut journey from our universe to what may exist beyond…A ‘parallel universe’ perhaps? They think that a frontier like that may be found at the centre of a ‘black hole’ (where massively strong gravitational forces prevent even light energy from escaping) and that a specially protected ‘virtual astronaut’ may be able to use a route through a ‘wormhole’ to find an alternative environment to the universe that we live in. You can see that ‘we’ cannot make such a thing as a ‘wormhole’. Cosmologists think that a wormhole is created when a very, very old star cools down and contracts (or shrinks) to something very tiny, very ‘dense’(or heavy in other words) and therefore very high in gravity.
    I hope that this gives some idea of how the term ‘wormhole’ is used in a scientific way and why humans cannot ‘make’ them.
    Good Luck,
