Important Research Findings from EMU Physics Department Academic Staff Member and PhD Student

Eastern Mediterranean University, Arts and Sciences Faculty, Physics Department Chair Prof. Dr. Mustafa Halilsoy’s and PhD student Ali Övgün’s recent research has proven that wormholes in the milky way may exist in a different model. 

Stating that between 24% and 27% of the universe is formed by dark matter, Prof. Dr. Halilsoy put forth that wormholes in the milky way have different qualities than the blackholes swallowing and tearing up objects travelling towards them. Prof. Dr. Halilsoy stated that objects going into wormholes may act as  an exit to different places of the universe, whether close or far. However, in order for this to happen, wormholes should form a shortcut by twisting space-time.

Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and Övgün  also put forth that reseach findings envisage the existence of a large wormhole in our galaxy and that this wormhole is suitable for two-way passage. However, Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and Övgün added that the biggest obstacle for travel is the indecisive attitude of the wormholes. Prof. Dr. Halilsoy also stated that unless there is something keeping the wormholes open by standing in between, their walls collapse so quickly that nothing is allowed to pass through. In order to keep wormholes open, there needs to be an anti-gravitational force such as negative energy or pressure.

According to Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and  Övgün, the existence of such wormholes in milkyway universe island and other similar universe islands seems theoretically possible. Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and Övgün added that testing this theory in principle would be possible by comparing or observing two universe islands. Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and Övgün also put forth that despite the fact that the research has not been published in any journals, it appeared in Arxiv and attracted the attention of different scientists or organisations. Prof. Dr. Halilsoy and Övgün finally stated that during the upcoming 50 years, it is possible that different research groups may observe a wormhole through telescopes.
