Wormholes Explained in Under Three Minutes

In the latest space-themed explainer video by Fusion, Kip Thorne, Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus, at Caltech explains wormholes in under three minutes.

If you’re a fan of science fiction, you may have already heard of wormholes: passageways through space-time that are essentially shortcuts between distant points in the universe. What you may not have heard, though, is that wormholes are a solution to Einstein’s equations of general relativity.

In a previous video Thorne explained hyperspace in under two minutes.
