    The wormhole theory can provide shortcuts for enormous distances between two points in curved spacetime.


    • Discovered by: 
      • Ludwig Flamm in 1916, 
      • Soon after Einstein proposed his General Theory of Relativity — a theory that describes the gravitational field. 
    • About:
      • A wormhole can be visualised as a tunnel with two ends at separate points in spacetime.
      • A wormhole can act as a bridge or a shortcut between two points in curved spacetime which are well separated in practical terms to the inhabitants of the universe.
      • Wormholes are consistent with the general theory of relativity.
    • No Evidences Yet:
      • The presence of wormholes has not yet been established through observation or inference by astronomers.
      • There is gathering support for the existence of entities such as the wormhole and others that have not yet been “seen”.
