This month, Paul Davies and Sara Walker will be joined by guest presenter Damien Easson, a theoretical physicist and professor at ASU.

January's webinar: Wormholes in space: are they real and how can we find them?

Wormholes are hypothetical shortcuts in spacetime and the subject of much discussion in both science and science fiction. But do they really exist? If so, how would we spot them and what would they mean for space travel and – perhaps – time travel?

This webinar is free and open to the public, however space is limited and registration is required.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Please submit your questions for discussion to with the subject ‘ASK A PHYSICIST Question: Wormholes in space: are they real and how can we find them?’.

Questions can also be submitted during the webinar through the zoom Q&A!
