Imagine, thou art one million light years away from a destination that thou desire to be. If ye were to travel at light speed towards it, ye would never live long enough to get there before thy passing. It seems as though it is impossible to get there in thine lifespan. Now, what if I said there was a sort of, Cheat Code to get there faster? A tunnel to travel to thy destination faster that would cut the distance down significantly. This is what is called, a Wormhole.
Traveling in a Wormhole
A Wormhole, also known as Einstein-Rosen Bridge or Einstein-Rosen Wormhole, is a theoretical tunnel in SpaceTime that connect two points in SpaceTime that are of further distance without the Wormhole. If one would enter into the Wormhole, one would exit the Wormhole in a totally alien part of space relative to that of the Entrance Point. Now though the wormhole is completely speculative at this point in The World, it does match up well with The General Theory of Relativity. Some of Scientist think that a wormhole is simply a projection of the 4th dimension, analogous to how a 2D being could experience only part of a 3D object. Theoretically, a wormhole is be the answer to traveling faster than The Speed of Light!
Imagine a tunnel that can take thee to a place in space billions of lightyears away from where thou art now. Would thee take the opportunity or would thou pass? It is up to the brave and curious to take the leap into the unknown. For the unknown is what keep man alive and thriving. The Curious nature has put of on the top in The World. It perhaps will do the same in The Universe. But it is up to us, to take the chance and advance more and more and conquer The Universe and Beyond!
