Are wormholes real or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? And if they are real how do they work and where can we find them?

About the Author: Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell


  1. I see it like : wormhole sends you somewhere inside our dimension. Blackhole sends you to another universe(dimension). I have an whole theorie for it. If this comment gets 1k likes i will make a video about it.

  2. It must be nice to be a physicist or astrophysicist. Theycan mathematically prove amy cockamami theory on anything and make people believe this because there is no way to physically prove any of their b.s.

  3. That car crashing with each other makes no sense.
    When it will pass through then it would enter another place rather than colliding with each other.
    I think this is wrong what you're saying. They could exist

  4. such a e s t h e t i c s <3
    string theory : no – the Higgs field kind of buried that, making it a bit more simplified, but there's still a few strings remaining I agree. Dark matter, new bosons, quantum fluctuations…
    time paradox are not a thing, if you take the car and get on the road running at 90s on a long road while me, a pedestrian find a shorter way and arrive first, this is not a time paradox, speed of light remains the same, we take different path to join a point A to a point B. This is also demonstrable, c remains the limit and you can not travel back in time.

  5. what if wormholes make a paradox where a different you ends up on the other side. so it would look like you walked through a door but in reality you’ve stumbled into a different universe running parallel to ours and if you looked back through it you would see yourself but that person wasn’t you.
