How Scientists Created A Wormhole In A Lab


Wormholes were theorized in 1935 by my buddy
Al Einstein and his pal Nathan Rosen as part of the theory of general relativity. They
were called Einstein-Rosen “bridges,” and are thought of as holes through space-time.
Wormholes have never been spotted, though one Russian researcher believes he could spot
them with a radio telescope… but it’s never been done. Until now, sort of. Scientists at the Autonomous University of
Barcelona have created a magnetic wormhole that appears to transfer a magnetic field
through quote “an extra special dimension.” Magnetic wormholes aren’t space-time wormholes,
but they are a similar concept. Space-time wormholes are a manipulation of gravitational
energy, which we don’t YET know how to do, whereas magnetic wormholes are manipulating
electromagnetic energy. Which we’re really good at. Using metamaterials (something that
gave me a headache on DNews before) the scientists were able to create a tunnel of magnetic energy
last year, and this year they made the tunnel invisible. See, while “normal” space-time
wormholes connect two points in this (or other) universes through an unseen bridge, but this
wormhole connects two magnetic fields through an unseen bridge! It’s really key to point out, that if you
looked at the wormhole, you’d see it. It’s not invisible to the human eye, just to magnetic
sensing. A normal magnet has two poles, North and South, and they’re opposed, with a magnetic
field connecting them. In this case, their wormhole separated the poles, singling them
out, creating a monopole — something that does not happen in nature. Researchers can’t
tell where the magnetic field that connects those monopoles is, which gives the illusion
it’s in a “special dimension.” This device makes a monopole pop into existence, with
no detectable connection to that pole on the other side. Manipulation of magnetic fields is used for
Magnetic Resonance Imaging at hospitals. MRI machines use giant magnets to force the protons
inside our bodies to align, then use radio waves to knock them around, causing them to
show up on the scans. MRI scanners are very sensitive to other magnetic interference,
and any metal can ruin the image and be dangerous to the occupants; because it’s basically a
giant electromagnet. Not to mention people have to slide into that claustrophobia-inducing
tube. With this new magnetic manipulation technique, MRI machines might be built which
could scan multiple things at once without interference, and wouldn’t need one massive
magnet. Using a magnetic wormhole MRI they might be able to do surgery and scan at the
same time! Plus, the manipulation of electromagnetic
fields isn’t just big business in medical science…
Remember way back in 2007 when Bush was president and I was a server at a popular chain Italian
restaurant? A study in Physical Review Letters made a big splash when it found if you could
manipulate electromagnetic energy in such a way, to create an “invisibility cloak,”
and that is essentially what these Spanish researchers have done! They hid a magnetic
field’s distortions from the outside, by using metamaterials, to create an invisible electromagnetic
wormhole. In the end, this wormhole can’t move anything
from one place to another, and, like much scientific research, doesn’t do anything super
practical at the moment, but it IS a proof-of-concept for some future technologies and could be
used for things we haven’t even thought of yet. On top of that, it’s a great simulation
of the gravitational wormhole we sci-fi addicts know and love! So, when we finally learn to
manipulate gravitational energy on a massive scale… we’ll have a few more theories to
work with. If you’re more into the mystery of gravitational
wormholes, Dr. Ian O’Neill and I did a podcast over on TestTube Plus all about black holes,
wormholes, white holes and really insane physics. It was a great series!! (soundup-link to playlist)
There’s also a link in the description if you’re on mobile, OR if you’re more of a radio
person, check it out over on itunes! We took all five episodes from YouTube and smushed
them into one kick-ass black hole podcast.

  5. Ahmad Raza says:

    I saw a wormhole in my backyard garden once… the worm used to travel through it time to time and feed itself from the soil of another planet but once it rained cats and dogs and the metamaterial could not survive the damage and the wormhole got closed… but I believe the worm is alive somewhere in the universe…

  6. Seth Woody says:

    Why is there so many holes in space?

  7. Magnolia Only says:

    Time to make my OWN worm hole

  8. Mars the Planet says:

    Bruh this isnt clickbait a wormhole is pretty much a concept that is a form of a portal

  9. Fiery_Fire33 Plays says:

    A black hole is probably a WORMHOLE, what I've learned if you enter a black hole you'll not necessarily die but be transport to a different dimension. Once you reach the other side you'll probably see a white hole while you get shot out of the black hole (of course you will die if you don't have a durable suit) This is most likely not true but It is a theory of mine.

    Question of the day/night

    Do you think Aliens exist?

    Want a different question? Scroll down.

    How do Aliens visit different solar systems, planets or galaxies OR universes? (Honestly I think theres onee universe I dunno I'm dumb lol)

    Here's video I recorded of an alien going through a wormhole at a park in North Carolina. Watch it here if you'd like 😉

  12. Tom Jenkins says:

    mico worm holes were created decades ago at Hughes Aircraft. There's dozens around the word. They send items in and come out in one of them..can't control which one yet tho. People have volunteered to go through but never came out anywhere…only inanimate objects. Stuff I've heard from an ex-Hughes employee.

  13. Allan Zhao says:

    You guys need scientists to make wormholes? HA! The worms in my backyard made 20!

  15. Malcolm Dale says:

    Title looked interesting so I clicked and saw some guy in a T-shirt screaming . Went elsewhere.

  16. Akka5000 says:

    if a black hole and a white hole collided anything that went into the black hole would come out of the white hole in a different universe or time period

  17. MinecraftSurvivalGaming says:

    2:10 what about the iron we all have in our body is it that small a dosage?

  18. Eric Draven says:

    Funny how he totally plagiarized the independent almost word for word ( without giving them a reference, even worse though, he said it wrong; 0:41 he says 'special' instead of 'spacial' lmaooo, ( it says “This means that the device transfers magnetic fields from one point in space to another point through a path… as if the transfer was made through an extra-spatial dimension." ).

  19. Veronica Kocsis says:

    To make worm holes you need exotic matters

  20. NagaHumanbeing ZooOfParticles says:


  21. Avro Arrow says:

    New discoveries are always fascinating!

  22. Ronak Tandon says:

    but magnetic energy has both repulsion and attraction but in gravitational fro e there is nothis like repulsion(we don't know is there exotic matter or not) hece its much easier to make a magnetic warm hole than a space time one

    ps: i mean its relatively easier not such easier thaat u can create it at ur own

  23. Sen 7 says:

    ther is no way someone is going to understand this without having basic concept of science

  24. Ayham orfali says:

    Your way of presenting the subject is pretty bad.. i didn’t get it

  27. GrummNation says:

    This means that soon we can make artificial gravity and make the NASA space station the ISS obsolete or useless and have newer tech on the new station and no more problems with the whole weightlessness and instead make a new large station like Sevastopol station from Aliens Isolation, make a new nation, with no way of immigration issues, no cars, no carbon-monoxide or natural greenhouse gasses, great!!!

  28. Patato Keftes says:

    So basically they replicated an inefficient experiment from October 1943…

  50. Maikito Official says:


  51. Karina Nalbandyan says:

    How can people check and confirm for themselves that the scientists really did do all these things aside from the scientist’s claims that the did? How can we tell that they definitely do all these things? Most people, myself including are very limited in their knowledge of science. This means scientists can tell us anything, and most people will blindly believe. Is it even ok for these scientists to make something happen that don’t naturally occur in nature? I say no, it’s not ok for them to do these things.

    On YouTube I save men toning in a machine that open up a warm hole it stay for 2hours open. And show with his phone he want to plant with 2 Sun he was on a beach . I don't know if it true I saw it . He put had and he had kids . Machine look like light he used a machine useing some kind of numbers he had tone in to numbers the warm hole had was yellow light turn into circle and open up a warm hole it's American youtube . And I believe NASA people make it.

    kind of a clickbait

  84. Da Artist says:


  85. mic stone says:

    may I offer a potential idea for a wormhole the fermi paradox talks about making one in a laboratory with both entrance and exit which might be two way travel we would have to take its exit and all going well to its location the old fashioned way we cannot go to the stars just yet, but what if we could mine our own solar system for elements useful to real easy(type 1 tech society) just pushing heavy contaners there arriving home minutes later and be moverble to wherever needed, no gravity no 10% payload 90% fuel needs no planetry heat or parachutes and such impractical amounts to make to exepencive for the effort. worm hole back the numbers for mass import with no downsides, I,m not long for this world own fault smoker. you scientist keep at it GOOD LUCK

  86. ou1z says:

    Ill be the test rat!

  87. Stafford McCoy says:

    I can't find the podcast.

  88. Max Pinion says:

    "Could be used for… something in the future that we haven't thought of yet."
    So you mean it's useless.

    Link led to a virus on my iPhone, thanks alot

  90. Biran He says:

    DARK (Netflix) brought me here…

  91. Ichiban Flower says:

    After you discover time travel you're deadmen already…why do science thinking of time travel leaping thru time instead of finding the possibilities of having an immortal life without getting old ,……hahaha just wondering…

  92. Ichiban Flower says:

    I know many of us came out in a hole of our mom….so lets all be thankful our mom is a true magician….

  93. Making Games says:

    The article states: ¨the magnetostatic wormhole requires constructing a tunnel for magnetic fields acting as if was outside the usual 3D space¨.. So, it´s like a macroscopic fluxtube? Anyway, interesting article!

  94. ScrotNimation says:

    I think a black hole is something like a wormhole but a wormhole have a stable protective barrier that block another dimension from smashing with the wormhole. What I’m saying is what if a black hole was a worm hole but the barrier can’t block another dimension from connect with our 3th dimension that we live in it could lead to any dimension

  95. Alexander Arnold says:

    The "Wormhole" idea was furthered by whom were trying to sabotage all Space Travel, and created the idea "Wormhole", possibly "inspired" by "Glass Blowing" (because of the visual effects), and not Physics, and possibly claimed by Lesser Physics as theirs, trying to have "more "Dominant"" Academics.

  96. Albert Torres says:

    But have they found the EinsteinRosenberg bendoverbillybridge sticking their head throug the darkmatter looking for the wormiehole with zeropoint mentality so they slide through the orifice to another universe.???

  97. En théo says:

    Very tempted to dislike because : low level clickbait. I'll let you pass on this one, Seeker, I'll let you pass…

  98. Josua Robson says:

    All scientists need to do is make some kind of object that behaves like an electromagnet that uses gravity.
