Space That Bends and Twists

  • Barry Parker


If we hope to send rockets to the stars someday, we must have a thorough understanding of space. After all, space is what separates us from the stars. One of the major reasons we want to understand space is because we would like to travel between two points in the universe without actually traversing the space between them. Impossible, you say. Yes, it does sound impossible, but we will see in this chapter that we might eventually be able to do it.
