What is the possibility of traversing a wormhole using the principles of quantum mechanics and curved space? While a traversable wormhole is theoretically possible given the correct pattern of entangled black holes, the challenge lies in finding such a pair.
- Traversable wormholes are theoretically possible through entangled black holes in the right pattern of entanglement.
- Quantum mechanics and curved space can provide equations for traversing a wormhole.
- The challenge lies in finding the initial pair of entangled black holes.
- There is no current known way to obtain such a pair.
- The podcast explores the theoretical feasibility of traversing a wormhole.
- Guests discuss the current research and understanding of the topic.
- The possibilities and implications of traversing a wormhole are discussed.
