Stellar Wormholes May Exist - Science News

Stellar Wormholes May Exist - Science News:  It’s possible, says Folomeev, that a stellar wormhole might generate signals that telescopes could record. In general, an ordinary star and one with a wormhole at its center would look the same to a distant observer. But if the wormhole has a strong enough influence, it might alter properties such as the mass or size of the stars in a nonstandard way. And if the wormhole is short, so that the two stars it links don’t lie far apart, an observer might see another unusual signpost — two closely spaced objects with nearly identical properties...
In their paper, Folomeev and his colleagues suggest that the matter in the wormhole would slosh around, generating astrophysical fireworks in the process. Oscillations in which different parts of the material move at different velocities could lead to collisions that might be energetic enough to produce gamma-ray bursts, the most powerful explosions in the universe.
