Wormholes

Wormholes are passageways through space-time, that are essentially connecting points between two separate distances or locations in the universe. If visualized, a wormhole is a tunnel connecting two different points in space time, or different galaxies. The best and simplest way to show this phenomenon is a paper example when two dots are drawn at… Continue reading Wormholes
