In a great new episode of their insightful, entertaining and fascinating animations, design house Kurzgesagt takes on the concept of wormholes. The video explains what a wormhole is, what theories it came, how they differ from black holes, how string theory plays into the whole thing and offers some thoughts on how we might create a wormhole from scratch.

From the outside black holes and wormholes can look very similar, leading some physicists to suggest the supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies are actually wormholes. It will be very hard to go all the way to the center of the Milky Way to find out though but that’s okay there might be an equally extremely hard way to get our hands on a wormhole we could try to make one.
