If exotic material [there's got to be a better name for it...] has enough negative gravitation to keep
a wormhole open, it sounds like it would be very useful in a propulsion system for interstellar
spacecraft. But then what happens to conservation of energy? Kinetic energy is created out of nothing
more than two particles in close proximity?
