I have been reading a book about black holes and I picked up a lot of information, but some things still bother me. First I don't understand why they think a wormhole exists. I understand that as you get closer to the singularity space time is curved drastically. But if you look at common sense, it should tell you that this is just a ball of matter so tightly compact that there is no hole and that anything that goes inside it will be destroyed. It seems that they took a graph of the curvature of space that approaches infinity and desided to say that is never reaches infinity and therefore there is a hole in the graph that they actually think is transversable. But how could it be infinity if there is a finite density. This makes no sense to me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't think of the other questions but I will post them soon. thanks
