Lol. Well, I was waiting more people to give their inputs. Maybe I scared them away with all those questions? Anyway, first of all, thanks for your
Lets discuss those answers by their numbers:
2) But there is time to those inside the wormhole. The tunnel is a shortcut between two points in the universe, so they will have to cross that
tunnel. There is a distance from one mouth to another mouth. I mean, imagine if those two points in space are separated billions of light years away.
Who is to say how big that wormhole tunnel will be? It could be a huuuuuuuuuuuuge tunnel.
3) I cant understand that. o_O
4) Rainbows? Hmmm.... Is there LIGHT inside the wormhole?
6) Wouldn't they just end up randomly somewhere else? Isn't the wormhole part of the universe?
7 e 8) Why can the ship be in the wormhole but not a person? If more than one ship can cross a wormhole at the same time, why cant someone from inside
the ship leave the ship?
9) I was considering that if they are in a tunnel and if that tunnel has a distance to be crossed and also considering they are not travelling FTL or
even at lightspeed, but slowed than that, then their velocity would determine how long it takes for them to cross the distance of the tunnel. And if
two spaceships enter the wormhole one could race each other.
Now, wormholes are just theories, of course. Here is why I'm considering the time taken to cross the tunnel of the wormhole:
"Special relativity only applies locally. Wormholes allow superluminal (faster-than-light) travel by ensuring that the speed of light is not exceeded
locally at any time. While traveling through a wormhole, subluminal (slower-than-light) speeds are used
. If two points are connected by a
wormhole, the time taken to traverse it would be less than the time it would take a light beam to make the journey if it took a path through the space
outside the wormhole. However, a light beam traveling through the wormhole would always beat the traveler
. As an analogy, running around to the
opposite side of a mountain at maximum speed may take longer than walking through a tunnel crossing it. A person can walk slowly while reaching his or
her destination more quickly because the distance is smaller."(wikipedia.... yeah, I know. Not as good as scanning Einstein´s brain =P)
