Scientists make “wormholes” without destroying time and space

It’s one small step for scientists, one quantum leap for mankind!

Physicists created a “theoretical” wormhole and sent a message through it without disrupting space and time – potentially paving the way for further teleportation research, experts said.

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology have created two tiny black holes in a quantum computer — simulating a traversable tunnel between remote regions of the universe, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

Maria Spiropulu, a Caltech physicist and co-author of the report, said the “holographic” tunnel has the properties of a “baby wormhole” — and that researchers would ideally progress to “adult wormholes and infant wormholes” step-by-step. “

Although the researchers didn’t create a physical wormhole, physicists hailed the study as an exciting engineering achievement.

“These ideas have been around for a long time, and they’re very strong ideas,” said study co-author Joseph Lykken. “But at the end of the day, we’re in experimental science and we’ve struggled for a very long time now to find a way to study these ideas in the lab. And that’s what’s really exciting about it.”

But the researchers said scientists are still a long way from teleporting a living being through a time-travel portal.

“As a trial, I can tell you it’s very, very far away. People come up to me and ask me, ‘Can you put your dog in the wormhole?’ So no,” Spiropulu said during a video briefing about the project.

For the study, scientists built the computer-generated cosmic tunnel on a device made by Google called the Sycamore quantum processor.

“This work is a successful attempt to observe the dynamics of traversable wormholes in an experimental setting,” the study concludes.

Researchers refer to wormholes as Einstein-Rosen bridges, after the two physicists who developed the theory, Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen.
