Yar recently sent me a link to a story about the possibility of sending people through wormholes. It’s a neat idea, but they add this little disclaimer:
“It would be a delicate operation, however. Add too much negative energy, the scientists discovered, and the wormhole will briefly explode into a new universe that expands at the speed of light, much as astrophysicists say ours did immediately after the big bang . . . To keep the wormhole open wide enough would take a negative field equivalent to the energy that would be liberated by converting the mass of Jupiter.”
I came to the conclusion that physicists are bored and have nothing left to do, so i think they’re just starting to make things up now.
They come up with things like this and then always keep them theoretical by saying it would require more energy than is in the entire universe or something. That way they never actually have to do anything, they just sit around in their labs all day and drink beer.
