December 11, 2013What are wormholes?

This is the wormhole video.

Wormholes connecting different points in space and time might seem like the stuff of science fiction, but these mysterious tunnels are an actual feature of theoretical physics. Scientists have yet to find evidence of a wormhole in the cosmos, but the passages are mathematically possible according to Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In the same way that a piece of paper can be folded in half, general relativity states that high mass can bend the fabric of space itself. In 1935, Einstein and physicist Nathan Rosen postulated that this process could result in a bridge forming between two previously separate destinations in space-time. If general relativity holds true, then these “Einstein-Rosen Bridges,” or wormholes, could act as shortcuts to the far off reaches of the cosmos.

Without the luxury of directly observing a wormhole, scientists can only speculate on how they might operate. A common theory suggests that a black hole—a point in space-time where gravity is so strong that even light cannot escape—might serve as the entrance.

  • The video is important!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is how our solar system orbit and rotates around the sun.

All of our planets orbit the sun.(In our solar system.) Our first four planets our rocky planets.Any other planet that is beyond the astroid belt is a gas planet.Such as Jupiter is a gas giant or gas planet.Pluto in my world is not a planet.
