    Are wormholes real or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? And if they are real how do they work and where can we find them?

    Few properties we want wormholes to have. 1- it must connect to distant parts of space time like your bedroom and bathroom. ME- DOOR ,U MEAN ?

    Seems the real question is: why WOULD there be such a thing as a worm hole?We often visualize singularities as a bowling ball on a trampoline pulling downward.Seems a more accurate visual would be a bowling ball pulling MANY (infinite #) trampolines in all directions, spherical, distorting spacetime in a perfect sphere around it, annihilating protons, neutrons, electrons, photons, their quarks and leptons, neutrinos, reality completely obliterated and dispersed across the frothing surface of the singularity.That's why I don't like the phrase "black hole". It's not a hole, it's the hardest object in the universe.But I get it...

    Light does not escape, so you would not see a thing. You would only see something after crossing the event horizon but you would be dead, so.
