Q: What’s the difference between black holes and worm holes? Could black holes take you to other universes?
For example, there are a number of stunningly bad movies that make the connection between black holes and worm holes explicit. But even in legitimate (non-Hollywood) physics circles you’ll sometimes find people talking about “going through” black holes, as opposed to (or in addition to) “being destroyed a lot” by black holes. However, this is a symptom of our paltry computational power back when black holes were first being theoretically researched. For example, they assume that the black hole exists forever (into the past and future) at the same size. So, to the point, there’s a history of people confusing or blurring the distinction between black holes and worm holes, and not completely without reason, but in general: black holes mean stop and worm holes mean go.
