Term: Wormholes

A hypothetical topological feature, based on general relativity, that connects two different points like a 'tunnel' in space-time. The most common concept of a wormhole is an Einstein-Rosen bridge. A trip through the wormhole could take much less time than a journey between the same starting and ending points in normal space. Wormholes have various types, intra-universe wormholes (connecting two distant regions of our Universe with each other) and inter-universe wormholes (that connect our Universe with another universe).
