The only experience with wormholes in space may be through the movie Interstellar which opened in movie theatres at the start of this month. Sci-fi fans can dream when it comes to traveling wormholes to get from one point to the next in rapid speed. Right now, this is all fiction as no one has discovered a wormhole thus far. According to astrophysicist Kip Thorne, the idea of traveling through wormholes may just exist in fiction rather than reality. Although it is possible for wormholes to exist somewhere in the universe, the chances of coming across one as less than scarce for those who are looking to travel through space.
The occurrence of a black hole or wormhole would go against the laws of physics making it very unlikely that they do in fact exist. The main problem with the idea of a wormhole is the fact that nothing is holding the hole together. With nothing keeping the walls out, they are likely to collapse. The only thing that would possibly work to keep the walls open would be negative energy. This energy is replicated in labs, but in order to hold a wormhole wall open, it would need much more negative energy than is likely to occur.
Another problem with the idea of a wormhole is the creation of it. A wormhole would have to be created and would not just occur by itself. This would likely be created by advanced civilization. In the movie “Interstellar”, a group who set out to find a new home created the wormhole. Wormholes remain hugely popular in films as sci-fi lovers enjoy learning about the possibility of black holes, but it looks like it may only be fiction for now. Scientists use this popularity to study the idea more and more.
