Galactic wormhole
A Galactic wormhole, a space-time tunnel, could exist in the middle of the Milky Way and we could travel through it.

Paolo Salucci, an astrophysicist of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, has published an alternative theory about dark matter the center of our galaxy.

He believes that dark matter at the center of the Milky Way, could sustain a giant wormhole that we could travel through, a doorway to another galaxy.

Based on the latest evidence and theories our galaxy could be a huge wormhole (or space-time tunnel, have you seen “Interstellar?”) and, if that were true, it would be “stable and navigable”. This is the hypothesis put forward in a study published in Annals of Physics and conducted with the participation of SISSA in Trieste. The paper, the result of a collaboration between Indian, Italian and North American researchers, prompts scientists to re-think dark matter more accurately.

Professor Paulo Salucci, said:

“If we combine the map of the dark matter in the Milky Way with the most recent Big Bang model to explain the universe and we hypothesise the existence of space-time tunnels, what we get is that our galaxy could really contain one of these tunnels, and that the tunnel could even be the size of the galaxy itself.

But there’s more. We could even travel through this tunnel, since, based on our calculations, it could be navigable. Just like the one we’ve all seen in the recent film ‘Interstellar.”


What we tried to do in our study was to solve the very equation that the astrophysicist ‘Murph’ was working on,” said Prof Salucci. “Clearly we did it long before the film came out.”
