Hundreds of years ago, with the emergence of the steam engine, mankind officially announced the road of scientific and technological development. With the help of science and technology, human civilization has ushered in a period of rapid development. Various kinds of science and technology continue to appear. At the same time, it also goes out of the earth and begins to explore the universe.
When human beings walk out of the earth, they really understand the vastness of the universe and the smallness of the earth. At that time, scientists’ dream was to explore the mystery of the endless universe and uncover the ultimate mystery behind the universe. However, it was not easy to realize this wish.
Although human beings have been able to observe tens of billions of light-years by means of astronomical telescopes, we all know that the celestial bodies or cosmic phenomena observed by astronomical telescopes are only a very vague situation. To really understand the universe, we still need to go to the near future for observation. For example, human beings know a lot about Mars. It is precisely because we have launched a lot of probes to Mars that we can have more and more comprehensive understanding of Mars through the close exploration of Mars.
It can be seen that if we want to really solve all kinds of mysteries in the universe, it is far from enough to rely on the observation of astronomical telescopes. We have to send detectors to explore in close range. However, if you want the probe to explore the deep space in the distant stars, it naturally needs a super fast speed, and the slowest speed is the speed of light.
Even at the speed of light, it may take millions of years for us to explore the entire galaxy. It can be seen that the speed of light is only the speed of tortoise in the cosmic scale. Only flying faster than light can we hope to explore the whole universe. However, for human beings, whether it is the speed of light or faster than light, it is too far away from us.
Under the existing scientific and technological system of human beings, the speed of light is the limit of the speed of an object. This is a conclusion based on Einstein’s theory of relativity. According to the theory of relativity, the speed of a mass object can only be infinitely close to the speed of light, and cannot reach or surpass it. If so, how can humans travel among the stars and explore the mysteries of the universe?
Even if human beings can develop the technology of light speed flight and superluminal flight in the future, it may be tens of thousands of years later. It is also possible that human beings can never achieve superluminal flight by relying on science and technology. Does that mean that humans will always be trapped in a limited area on the edge of the galaxy?
At this time, people think of the legendary wormhole. I believe many people have heard of the wormhole. In many science fiction works, there are descriptions of the wormhole. It is equivalent to a space-time tunnel, which can not only quickly get from one place of the universe to another place, but also travel through time and space, to other worlds, and even go back to the past and to the future.
Wormhole is also called space-time hole. It was first put forward by Austrian physicist Ludwig Flem in 1916. In 1930, Einstein and Nathan Rosen assumed when they studied the gravitational field equation that wormhole can make instantaneous space transfer or time travel. To put it simply, “wormhole” is the space-time space connecting the remote regions of the universe Tube.
Wormhole is a kind of space structure that scientists conjecture. It is still unknown whether wormhole exists in the real universe. However, through a lot of research and various simulation experiments, scientists believe that wormholes are very likely to exist in the universe. If this is the case, then there will be hope for human beings to explore the universe.
I believe everyone has a dream to travel in the stars, but to realize such a dream, we need a super fast speed of the spaceship, which should surpass the speed of light. And the traditional navigation mode, whether it is the speed of light or superluminal, is the rapid progress of the spacecraft itself relying on strong power. And wormhole travel may be completely different, it is similar to the surfing mode.
When we are surfing, the surfboard at our feet doesn’t move itself, but moves forward quickly through the driving of the waves. Wormhole shuttle may also be similar to this, when the spacecraft enters the wormhole, it enters another space completely different from the real universe, we can also call it the Dark Universe. In the dark universe, the speed of space exceeds the speed of light, and the spacecraft will be driven by the space current when it enters.
I believe many people know that there is very little matter in the universe that we can see at present, maybe only 5%, and 95% of the matter is dark matter and dark energy that we can’t see. They are the dominant and behind the control of the universe. Since only 5% of the visible matter can form a visible universe, it is possible that 95% of the dark matter and dark energy can also form a more vast and mysterious dark universe.
The two universes are superimposed on each other, but the rules are completely different. The speed of matter in the visible universe is limited by the speed of light. No matter how powerful the energy is, the speed of objects in the visible universe can only be infinitely close to the speed of light, so it is impossible to realize interstellar shuttle in the visible universe.
In the dark universe, there may be no upper limit on the speed of an object, the initial speed may also be at the speed of light, and the upper limit is infinite. So when you fly into the dark universe, you will get the initial speed of light, and then this speed will continue to increase. The longer you stay in the dark universe, the more terrible the acceleration of the spacecraft will be. Therefore, you can realize the interstellar crossing and quickly reach the deep part of the distant sky.
The wormhole scientists have been looking for may not be the same as black holes, which can appear in the universe and be observed by us. Only through the powerful energy can it be possible to open wormholes, that is to say, wormholes exist in all parts of the universe, but it usually does not appear, but is in a closed state. It can only be opened with super strong energy impact.
If behind the wormhole is really a space composed of dark matter and dark energy, then opening the wormhole is also equivalent to opening the channel between the visible universe and the Dark Universe. This may be the reason why scientists can’t find wormholes in the real universe, because they are all closed and need to be opened with energy. Of course, there may be a super energy explosion somewhere in the universe. Under the impact of energy, it accidentally opens a wormhole and is discovered by us.
Of course, the above is just a kind of theoretical conjecture. At present, no one knows whether wormhole exists or not, and what kind of mystery it has. Only with the rapid development of science and technology, with more powerful space exploration equipment in the future, there may be more discoveries. If wormholes need the impact of energy to open, then there may be a lot of natural wormholes in the universe. We need to know that the universe will have huge energy bursts every day.
In any case, if human beings want to realize the dream of traveling in the universe, they need the super fast speed of spaceships. Even if wormhole, the legendary interstellar passage, does not exist, in the future, scientists will be able to study and explore other super light speed flight modes. No difficulty can hinder the pace of human exploration of the universe, but it will take a long time.
