The idea of a wormhole is more than a tunnel through space... In essence, it's a tunnel through the space/time continuum. In otherwords, if one
could travel in it, then the travel time between the two points (the openings of the tunnel) would be zero. It's a tear in the fabric of
So far, they are theoretical, and they also constantly are in movement (and thus unpredictable as to where/when you'd end up). Also, only energy is
thought to be able to travel through them (due to size, etc.), so first you'd have to convert the mass to energy (by accellerating it to the speed of
light, per Einstein), predict when/where the tube ends, and then reconvert the energy back to mass on the other side.
That's a pretty tall order, and one we're not even close to I'd wager....not even in the most super top secret above top secret world.
In series such as Star Trek, Stargate, etc., they portray man or ship-sized wormholes...the current theory does not allow for this, with the tunnel
entrances/exits being on the microscopic level.
So in short, NO we have not learned how to do this, or even that it CAN be done if we had the tech to do so.
