This is a groundbreaking experience that points the way to understanding our Universe. Scientists have managed to create a wormhole directly on Earth from a quantum computer.
The first space-time passage created on Earth?
First of all, you have to understand what is defined by a wormhole. It is a passage between two black holes that connects to each other. It is thus estimated that by dropping a particle into one of the black holes, it will reappear in the other. But it was all theory.
At the beginning of December, physicists succeeded in achieving the impossible, creating a wormhole. This is the reproduction of the phenomenon under the conditions in which the wormhole was defined. Because yes, there are still a lot of unknowns on the subject.
A quantum computer from Google, the Sycamore, managed with eight qubits (quantum bits), to reproduce what we imagine to be a wormhole. It is obviously tiny, but the advantage of the quantum computer is that it is observable, whatever its size.
Proof that wormholes exist?
We are now entering the phase where scientists will be tearing themselves apart to find out whether or not this proves the existence of wormholes. This would corroborate Einstein’s theory of relativity. But this is a computer experiment, certainly quantum, but it remains theoretical. It is also incredible to think that in 1935 this theory already existed, even before having discovered black holes. We were simply thinking of an element so heavy that it could dig through space-time until it connected to a second one. In reality, it was a black hole whose density is colossal.
It could also help in the explanation of quantum entanglement. It is the phenomenon which binds two particles at a significant distance and which reacts in the same way, whether it is one or the other which is stimulated. This quantum entanglement was worth a Nobel Prize in 2022 to Frenchman Alain Aspect.
This experience thus leads to being able to understand the link between the quantum world of particles as well as the general relativity that we no longer know, with space-time and gravity. The phenomena thus have a link, but for the moment it is not observable. The experience of these physicists thus provides a potential answer.
It only took eight qubits to achieve what seemed both impossible and yet so close to happening. The union of two normally incompatible theories between the infinitely large and the infinitely small. The simple fact of having created this wormhole has potentially colossal implications. for the future of our understanding of what surrounds us.
