Agree, it would be very convenient if there was a tunnel in the Universe connecting two regions of space-time: flew into it and flew out somewhere in another galaxy.
Such hypothetical tunnels, wormholes, are considered by some scientists to be the product of science fiction. Although, as the same scientists note, if wormholes really exist, they are extremely unstable and quickly collapse.
Let’s assume wormholes are 100% real, but how do we find them? To search for wormholes, we need a black hole, stars in its orbit, and modern equipment to predict the behavior of stars, according to a new study.
It is believed that wormholes are something like a “fold” in space-time.
Imagine an ant crawling over a piece of cloth from one point to another. If the fabric is laid out straight, then the ant will have to overcome the maximum distance, but if the fabric is folded so that the dots touch, then the insect just needs to overcome the fold.
Now imagine that the fabric is space-time, and the fold between the dots is a wormhole. Physicists Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen published a massive study on this in 1935 and their concept was called the Einstein-Rosen bridge.
Finding wormholes in the Milky Way is not that difficult, according to a new publication by scientists from the University at Buffalo and Yangzhou University.
They argue that the tunnel, as it were, combines two regions of space, which means that such massive objects as stars located at the other end of the wormhole, gravitationally affect the stars near “our” end of the tunnel.
In order for a wormhole to form, an extreme gravitational environment is needed, like around a black hole or even inside a black hole’s event horizon.
So where do we find a massive black hole in the Milky Way and a few stars in orbit around it? The galactic center of the Galaxy is quite suitable, because the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A * rests there , and a whole group of stars revolves around it. If there is a wormhole in that region, then we can fix it by observing the movement of stars.
“If there is a star on each side of the wormhole, then our star should feel the gravitational influence of the star on the other side,” said cosmologist Dejan Stojkovic of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
“The gravitational flow will pass through the wormhole. Using the software it is possible to predict the movement of stars around Sagittarius A* and if we notice a deviation, then it could very well be caused by a wormhole.”
This is actually more difficult than it might seem at first glance.
The mass of Sagittarius A* is 4 million times the mass of the Sun and is by far the dominant gravitational force in the region. Trying to fix the deviation in the movement of one or even several stars is painstaking work.
In the event that the wormhole is inside the event horizon of a black hole, as some theorists predict, then we would not be able to see its effect on the orbit of stars at all, since the effect would be indistinguishable from the influence of the black hole itself.
The good news is that we have a huge archive of data obtained during the observation of the star S2, which is located next to a supermassive black hole. Two independent teams have been monitoring S2 for 25 years, and with each passing year, technology has improved to provide more accurate information.
There will be a lot to analyze, but even if we manage to fix a perturbation in the orbit of the S2 star, this will only be indirect evidence of the presence of a wormhole.
However, if we want to find a wormhole, then we need a starting point and Sagittarius A* with S2 is an ideal pair for this. However, even if we find a wormhole, travel through it is unlikely or completely unsafe. For now,
“Even if a wormhole exists, people and spaceships are unlikely to squeeze through. We need a source of negative energy to keep the wormhole open, and while science does not know how to do this without magic, ”concluded Stojkovic.
But 100 years ago, people did not think that they would land on the moon. Therefore, according to other scientists, it is only a matter of time before people travel through wormholes in space.
Former US Air Force fighter pilot: UFOs use Star Trek-style warp drive
A former US Air Force fighter pilot asserts that he has deciphered
the method behind the extraordinary maneuvers of UFOs, reports dailystar.co.uk.
the past two decades, numerous military encounters with these enigmatic
crafts have been reported, prompting a significant investigation by the
One of the most renowned sightings occurred during the
USS Nimitz encounter, where fighter pilots witnessed a UFO descending
from 28,000 feet to just above sea level in less than a second.
astonishing movement would imply that the craft reached a staggering
speed of 19,000 miles per hour, a velocity that would be fatal to any

characteristics: it moves without inertia, essentially lacking weight,
and it accelerates at an incredibly rapid pace without affecting its
believes that the explanation lies within a technology that seems
straight out of science fiction. He proposes that the answer to the UFO
enigma lies in the Alcubierre Drive, a theoretical interstellar engine
conceptualized by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre in 1994.
Alcubierre Drive employs a form of “space warp” technology, reminiscent
of what has been depicted in episodes of Star Trek. By bending space, a
craft inside a “warp bubble” could potentially travel at or even
surpass the speed of light without violating the known laws of physics.
the Alcubierre Drive remains a hypothetical concept with challenges to
overcome, Chris notes that the required energy is no longer believed to
be unattainably large.

drive, as well as another groundbreaking technology theorized by
American aerospace engineer Salvatore Pais.
Pais suggests that
high-powered rotating magnets could theoretically eliminate an object’s
inertia, and he has filed a patent for a starship based on this
However, Chris maintains skepticism regarding Pais’
theory. He explains that while Pais’s patent applications for the US
Navy attracted attention for their potential energy-related
applications, doubts have been raised about their feasibility. There is
speculation that they may be scams, pseudoscience, or disinformation
intended to mislead adversaries of the United States.
rival theories propose that the “Tic Tac” UFO is a classified Pentagon
project testing similar advanced technologies discussed by Chris.
A Mysterious Earth-Like Planet Has Just Appeared in Our Solar System, Scientists Say
Scientists say they have found evidence of a new Earth-like
planet that has suddenly appeared in our Solar System and is orbiting
Physicists, including those from the National Astronomical Observatory
of Japan, said the planet is likely to be the mysterious ‘Planet Nine’
that was hypothesised to exist in the far outer edges of the Solar
Several studies in the past have suggested there is likely an
undiscovered planet beyond the Kuiper Belt – a stellar disk of materials
such as asteroids, space rocks, comets around the Sun in the outer
Solar System past the orbit of Neptune.
Independent.co.uk reports: In the new research, published recently in The Astronomical Journal, scientists
found that some of the objects in the Kuiper Belt behave in a way
indicative of the presence of a small planet among them.
One such object, they said, is about 500 astronomical units (AU) from
the Sun, where 1 AU is the distance between the Sun and the Earth.
In comparison Neptune is at a distance of 30 AUs from the Sun.
Some of these were also found to have “odd” orbits suggesting they
are being pull by the gravity of a cosmic entity larger than those that
typically influence such objects.
Computer simulations run by the scientists indicate that the most
likely explanation for the observations was another hidden planet in the
“We predict the existence of an Earth-like planet,” researchers wrote in the study.
“It is plausible that a primordial planetary body could survive in
the distant Kuiper Belt as a Kuiper Belt planet (KBP), as many such
bodies existed in the early solar system,” they added.
If such a planet exists, researchers say it would have a mass about
1.5 to 3 times that of Earth with an inclination of about 30 degrees.
They say the theorised planet’s orbit would likely place it between 250 and 500 AU from the Sun.
Researchers say the discovery of such a planet close to the Kuiper
Belt can unravel new constraints on planet formation and evolution.
“In conclusion, the results of the KBP scenario support the existence
of a yet-undiscovered planet in the far outer solar system,” scientists
