Black holes can't collapse. Worm holes can (didn't you catch that episode of STAR TREK? Kidding.) Seriously though, Black holes are a proven theory. Worm holes are not. Consequently, we know a little bit more about black holes than worm holes. It has been theorized that there are worm holes. Little breaks in space-time that connect parts of the universe to other parts of the universe in an anomolic fashion.
IF you were in a spaceship and could actually find a wormhole, and IF you were to go through it, and IF the wormhole didn't collapse from an object that would have to be traveling at close the speed of light and would consequently be causing a major disturbance inside a previously stationary object, and IF the spaceship actually got to the other end of the wormhole safely - well, hallelujah! You're now the proud captain of a ship completely lost in space AND time, because the universe is four dimmensional and you can never go back. Never!
If you're nearing a black hole though you're just screwed over 'cause the minute you pass the event horizon you aren't never coming back. And don't give me that "well there MIGHT be a way out" Language Removed 'cause if light can't escape than neither can you.
Then you get what scientists like to demonically call "spaghettified" and you (sorry to burst your bubble) die. That's it. End of story.


p.s. What? It's true.
