    Is it possible? Does it already exist? Is it currently being studied or looked into?
    And if it were possible would this mean wars would be taken to deep outer space?

    Yes worm holes are theoretically possible, do they are already exist? well the the truth is we don't know for sure chances are though given the vastness of space that some will exist. Yes the possibility of worm holes has/is being studied, wars taken to deeper outer space? Well certainly not any time soon, firstly we haven't got any war machines capable of getting to a worm hole, even if we found one. Then of course nobody really knows what would happen if you tried to travel through one. Also we, as yet, have no reason to conduct warefare in space.

    Realistically if we do find evidence of worm holes it is unlikely the first ones we will find would be the type you could travel through.

    Thanks so much for your input. I'm starting to get into all this, and I did not even think about your comment. Now if you could once more, what are the most common theories has to what "can" happen if we managed to go through a worm hole to begin with.

    To be honest I think that is actually quite a hard question to answer, there are and have been many theories about wormholes, how they could exist and what they could actually do, from time travel, alternate realities to simple point to point travel from one place to another. As far as know one of the first instances for the wormhole concept was the Einstein-Rosen Bridge, so called because it was published by Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen in 1935.

    One of the more simple layman's explanations of what a wormhole actually is a corridor through another dimension that allows 2 or more points in our normal space time to be connected and thus allowing vast distances to be transversed very quickly. Pretty much like taking a 2 dimensional piece of paper drawing 2 dots one at each end then folding the paper over and feeding a straw through both dots. This is ment to symbolise the idea of using extra dimensional travel for the wormhole to take 'shortcuts' from distance points within the dimensions of our reality.

    You fall in the hole and end up somewhere else in the Universe, probably as a spaghettified spewing of particles.

    Now your scaring me. But sounds tasty. Spaghettified. Different dimensions eh? That's a whole other bag of cookies I bet.
    I got a brief description of that one dot another dot paper example back in h.s. but nothing too detailed. That's LAUSD for you.
