Strange movements of stars, according to a new study, could provide evidence for the existence of space-time tunnels known as wormholes.
Wormholes are mysterious elements that have been used in science fiction novels and movies for many years, but they have never been seen in reality.
"If you have two stars on each side of the wormhole, the star on our side should sense the gravitational influence of the star on the other side. The gravitational flow will flow through the wormhole, "said Dejan Stojkovic, cosmologist and professor of physics at the University of Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences. "If you map the expected orbit of a star around Sagittarius A *, you should see deviations from this orbit if there is a wormhole with a star on the other side." FOR ALIEN LIFE

In their article, published in Physical Review D earlier this month, scientists write that it would be possible to to determine the presence of a wormhole by looking for small changes in the predicted orbit of the stars near Sagittarius A *.
However, Stojkovic also stated that wormholes, if ever discovered, would not be the kind intended for them in films like "A Wrinkle in Time". "
" Even if a wormhole can be crossed, humans and spaceships will most likely not pass, "he said," Realistically, you would need a negative energy source to keep the wormhole open, and we do not know how to do it. To create a huge wormhole that is stable, you need some magic.
The scientist also explained that collecting data over a longer period on S2, a star orbiting Sagittarius A *, would allow researchers to determine the presence of a wormhole. These advances could occur within a decade or two.
