For fans of time-bending science fiction, there is good new and there is bad news, according to new research.

The good news is that wormholes, famously theorized and depicted throughout history as being shortcuts between time and space, may indeed exist.

News - Forms - Transit

The bad news, however, is that they are likely not viable forms of instantaneous transit.

'It takes longer to get through these wormholes than to go directly, so they are not very useful for space travel,' said the author of a new study from Harvard University, Daniel Jafferis.

Wormholes - Albert - Einstein - Theory - General

Wormholes have long been proffered by Albert Einstein's theory of General Relativity but have yet to be observed by scientists.

Jafferis' statements on wormholes come from analyzing a hypothetical involving two black holes that are entangled on a quantum level called the ER=EPR, a correspondence created by joining two of Einstein's theories.

Relationship - Juan - Maldacena - Institute - Advanced

This relationship was posited in 2013 by Juan Maldacena from the Institute for Advanced Study and Lenny Susskind from Stanford.

According to Jafferis' conclusions -- which are set to be...
