Wormhole let down
I enjoyed Robert Matthews’s feature in the June issue (p38). Through popular sci-fi films and shows such as Stargate, Farscape and 2001: A Space Odyssey, wormholes gave someone like me hope that we could spread out across the Galaxy, and perhaps the Universe, through these rips in space-time. So you can imagine my disappointment when I discovered, towards the end of the article, that even if we were able to find a stable wormhole, it’d take us longer to travel through it than if we’d just travelled to where it would spit us out by conventional means! Talk about an anticlimax.
