JAKARTA – Astrophysics theory studies the phenomena of the universe. One interesting topic that is the subject of intense debate and research is the theory about the possibility of an intergalactic “shortcut” that can be used for fast interstellar travel or the so-called Wild Theory.
A galaxy is a collection of gas, dust and billions of stars along with a solar system which are all held together by gravitational forces. Some scientists argue that the universe has 100 billion galaxies. The distance between galaxies is so far that even measurements in kilometers are not sufficient.
Distance in outer space is expressed in units of light years. One light year is equivalent to 1.46 trillion kilometers and the distance between galaxies is approximately billions of light years. Of course, this makes some people truly amazed at the creation of God Almighty.
Even though it sounds like a science fiction concept, if you explore it further, there is a scientific basis for this theory, see the explanation.
Wild Theory Basics
The Wild Theory in astrophysics refers to the idea that the universe may have “shortcuts” or “gateways” that allow intergalactic travel faster than light requires. This is comparable to common ideas in science fiction such as “warp jumps” or “wormholes.” The basis of this theory is about understanding the structure of the universe and how space-time works.
Space-Time and Wormholes
One of the foundations of this theory includes the concept of wormholes described in Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Wormholes are solutions to the equations of general relativity that connect two places in space-time. In theory, if you can control a wormhole, you can create a shortcut between time and space.
A fundamental assumption in the Wild Theory is that if there is an intergalactic shortcut or gateway, then there may be an extraterrestrial intelligence far more advanced than humans know how to use. This theory is related to speculation about life beyond Earth and how that life could have a deeper understanding of the physics of the universe.
Sustainability and Correctness of Theory
However, it is important to note that the Wild Theory is speculation. Although there are physical theories that support the possibility of intergalactic shortcuts, there is no concrete evidence or experiments to support this idea. The Wild Theory is often considered a science fiction concept rather than proven science.
Experiments and Future Research
As technology and our understanding of the physics of the universe advance, there may be opportunities to test the Wild Theory. For example, scientists could try to find evidence of wormholes or other methods to connect two points in the universe at a faster rate. However, this is a huge challenge that requires resources and very sophisticated technology.
The Wild Theory in astrophysics is an interesting concept that stimulates the imagination of many people. Although there is no concrete evidence to support this idea, it is important to continue investigating and understanding the universe. Maybe one day someone will understand more complex ways to travel between galaxies.
Until the time of proof arrives, humans will have to rely on the latest technology and understanding. Therefore, the Wild Theory remains a subject of interesting research and debate in the field of astrophysics.
