A new theory suggests that peculiar bridges through space-time may look like an ordinary black hole.< /p> Related video
Physicists have long wondered: Could wormholes or wormholes exist? This is a kind of passage that connects two distant points in space and time. Some scientists believe that such tunnels in space could theoretically exist. Back in the early 20th century, physicists Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen suggested that a wormhole could be created using a black hole and a so-called white hole. The idea was revisited by scientists at Sofia University in Bulgaria. They believe that such passages in space have already been discovered, but they are difficult to distinguish from an ordinary black hole, writes ScienceAlert.

Modern theories that are based on Einstein's assumptions say that the existence of wormholes does not contradict the known laws of gravity. To visually demonstrate what a wormhole is, you can take a regular sheet of paper and fold it in half. Then you need to take an ordinary ballpoint pen and pierce this sheet. Everything, the wormhole is ready. In this case, the sheet of paper is a fabric of space-time, and the distance between two points on an unfolded sheet can be overcome very quickly if these two points are nearby.
Physicists from Sofia University, Bulgaria believe that wormholes can look just like ordinary black holes. That is, these may be the same white holes that Einstein spoke of. They just look like the famous space monsters, but in fact they have the same passage through space-time inside.
Scientists believe that under certain circumstances, matter can pass through this passage and exit from the other end with more or less intact information.
Matter that falls into an ordinary black hole swirls around it before disappearing forever. Thus, an accretion disk of very high temperature material forms around the black hole, which creates powerful radiation. Thanks to this, black holes can also be seen.
If a black hole is a wormhole, scientists say this light will have distinctive characteristics. Although they are very difficult to find. But that doesn't mean it's impossible.
A new theory suggests that wormholes could be lurking in most black holes in the universe. But you can see these wormholes using gravitational lensing. This method of detecting distant space objects is that, located between the observer and, in this case, a black hole, another object will bend the light coming from it.
It is the distortion of light that can show the differences between an ordinary black hole and a black a hole that has an exit at another point in space. Scientists suggest that you can see the light that passes through the wormhole.
Focus already wrote that the French physicist suggested that there could be stable passages between black holes that connect space and time.
