There was a time not so many years ago that a lot of people, experts even, didn't think the sound barrier could be cracked. Well, it was cracked and now it gets cracked on a regular basis and in multiples. We didn't do it by manipulating sound frequencies, we did it with kick ass rockets and jet engines.
Einstein never accepted quantum mechanics as a "real" and complete theory, struggling to the end of his life for an interpretation that could comply with relativity without complying with the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. As he once said: "God does not play dice",
But Einstein's defeat represents one of the highest points of scientific research in the first half of the twentieth century because it called attention to an element of quantum theory, quantum non-locality, which is absolutely central to our modern understanding of the physical world.

Actually it's thought that most, if not all galaxies have a central black hole. A black hole is not the same thing as a wormhole. If wormholes exist they consist of a paired black/white hole pair. While there is much evidence for the existence of galactic black holes, there is no evidence for the existence of white holes or wormholes. So far both are purely theoretical and speculative.
The energy which is "ingested" by a black hole does not go anywhere. It stays in the black hole along with the matter which is drawn in. However, according to Stephen Hawking, over a very long period of time black holes may evaporate by the process which is now called Hawking radiation.
