Magnetic Wormhole Created In Lab

Physicists from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, claim to have manufactured a magnetostatic wormhole in laboratory. The paper is published in Scientific Reports.

Predicted by the Theory of Relativity, wormholes are, perhaps, one of mankind most implausible dreams. If they really do exist, they could propel us into other regions of the universe in a relatively very short period of time because of their supposed ability to warp space-time. With the new experiment, though, they might not be that far-fetched.

Scientists have succeeded in creating a magnetic wormhole in laboratory that is able to carry a magnetic field through space without it being detected.

“Using matematerials and metasurfaces, our wormhole transfers the magnetic field from one point in space to another through a path that is magnetically undetectable. We experimentally show that the magnetic field from a source at one end of the wormhole appears at the other end as an isolated magnetic monopolar field, creating the illusion of a magnetic field propagating through a tunnel outside the 3D space,” write the authors.

The wormhole cannot, however, transport matter. On the other hand, the findings suggest that the wormhole might be able to transport a physical object’s magnetic field.

The magnetic wormhole is described as an analogy of the space-time one that is predicted in the theory.

“It changes the topology of space, as if the inner region has been magnetically erased from space,” Sanchez explains.

The findings allegedly constitute mathematical evidence supporting the theories that black holes are potentially wormholes.
