How Do You Make a Wormhole? We are not even sure that wormholes can exist at all, although in the past fifteen years there has been very much theoretical progress on their existence, so for this section of this article we will assume that they can exist. But do they naturally occur in space, or do they need to be created artificially? If they do exist at all, there is a pretty good chance that they appear naturally, but it might also be possible to create one artificially. Here is one theory:

Get four identical sheets of metal (same size, chemical composition, etc.). Leave them in pairs slightly apart. While keeping them perfectly parallel, separate the two pairs to become the entrance and exit of the wormhole. Electrically charge each plate with an immense amount of energy. This would require quadrillions of times the amount that most powerful machine on earth could ever harness. We would probably need to destroy multiple stars and collect their energy in order to have a sufficient amount. When something is placed between one pair of sheets, it will be immediately be transferred within the other pair. However, some problems arrive from this process. First, the amount of energy required, even if it could ever be accumulated, would almost surely vaporize the transient into an unrecognizable collection of particles. Yet this is only the smallest of possible problems. Some scientists insist that to retain the wormhole in an open state, you would need to fill it with "negative energy", which may not even exist. Matter and energy are very closely related, as Einstein has shown in his equation, E=mc2. Since this is true, then the same is probably true for negative energy and antimatter (assuming that they exist). Therefore, the negative energy in a wormhole would possibly create antimatter as well. However the transient of the wormhole is regular matter, and would need to come into contact with antimatter inside the wormhole. When matter and antimatter touch, both would instantly vanish in a blinding flash of light. (Please note that the matter and its opposite do not simply become invisible, become dark matter, or become transferred to another place; they completely cease to be.) Hence, a hazard of wormholes is the chance that the transient would no longer exist, and simultaneously, the shortcut through the fourth dimension would also clamp shut.
