Black holes could be portals to other universes, scientists say

Black holes could be portals to other universes, scientists now say, and in fact may be "wormholes," or rapid-transit gateways.

Wormholes as transit tubes have long been popularized in science fiction as the preferred way to travel very long distances. Now it turns they might actually function in this way.

According to New Scientist:

Physicists Thibault Damour of the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques in Bures-sur-Yvette, France, and Sergey Solodukhin of International University Bremen in Germany now say that these objects could be structures called wormholes instead.

Wormholes are warps in the fabric of space-time that connect one place to another. If you imagine the universe as a two-dimensional sheet, you can picture a wormhole as a "throat" connecting our sheet to another one. In this scenario, the other sheet could be a universe of its own, with its own stars, galaxies and planets.

They also speak of micro-wormholes that could be created through atom-smashing experiments.
