A theory proposed in a new study says that wormholes, if they exist, might be more stable than previously suggested.
A new theory has attempted to explain whether wormholes, a theoretical connection of two separate points in spacetime, can be used as a viable means for space travel in the future.
But what are wormholes?
Theorized by physics giant Albert Einstein and by American-Israeli physicist Nathan Rosen, who coined the term “Einstein-Rosen bridge,” a wormhole is a hypothetical short-cut that could facilitate travel between two otherwise distant points in spacetime. Although wormholes have never been observed, their possible existence is compatible with Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity but there are counter theories that suggest they can’t exist.
