Wormholes don’t only exist in space. Scientists have just created one in the lab…with magnets!
First theorized in 1935 by Albert Einstein and as part of the theory of general relativity, wormholes were originally known as “Einstein-Rosen bridges,” and are thought of as holes through space-time. Although there’s math that can prove they exist, they’ve never been created or spotted anywhere in the universe.
However, scientists at the Autonomous University of Barcelona have created a magnetic wormhole that appears to transfer a magnetic field through “an extra special dimension.” Magnetic wormholes aren’t space-time wormholes, but they work in a similar way: space-time wormholes are a manipulation of gravitational energy, whereas magnetic wormholes are a manipulation electromagnetic energy.
