The Interstellar Wormhole

The astronauts in the movie are able to travel billions of light years in a few seconds because of a wormhole. A wormhole is when two singularities form in two points of space and they connect forming a hole which allows travel between the connection. Unfortunately the typical shape of the wormhole is a simple cylinder with space bent around it which allows it to collapse in on itself. If the wormhole would be shaped like a sphere it would be able to stay open.

  1. Four sentences does not a blog post make. I would have liked to have seen what you were actually capable of in this course.
