Is this actually true, has anyone discovered a worm hole? I think he
is right. Buy this I mean knowone has traveled through a black hole,
therefor knowone knows what is inside of it (and do not say but we
have sent satilights into them).
If a blackhole were actually a worm hole then it would travel to a
parellel universe, a universe that is off of any of our current
universal tracking. So I belive it could verywell be possiable for
a blackhole and a worm hole to be the same thing at times.
