Cambridge Physicists Find Wormhole Proof | IdeaFeed | Big Think

Physicists at the University of Cambridge have found a theoretical foundation for the existence of wormholes, which are tubes that connect two different points in space-time. If a piece of information or physical object could pass through the wormhole, it could open the door to time travel or instant communication across enormous distances. “But there’s a problem: Einstein’s wormholes are notoriously unstable, and they don’t stay open long enough for anything to get through.” In 1988, physicists reached the conclusion that a kind of negative energy called Casimir energy could keep wormholes open.
