Is it possible to artificaly distort the space-time continum?
There is been some theoretical work that suggests wormholes
might exist near a rotating cylindrical black hole. Now
if only we could figure out how to make a cylindrical
Well, every object distorts space-time a little bit: the
distortion depends basically on the amount of mass you have
concentrated in a small region. But major distortions require
enormous masses in very small regions, and current technology
is quite incapable of doing such a thing.
