Etymology of "wormhole"[edit]

The article doesn't really say anything about the use of Worm and hole in the name. It's not majorly important to wormholes, but seems like it ought to be mentioned.--Varkman (talk) 00:41, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

"Robust theoretical strength"?[edit]

It may be that some "equations of the theory of general relativity have valid solutions that contain wormholes". But is that the only basis for arguing for "its robust theoretical strength"? If that is the case, this is contrary to the scientific method, and not at all robust.122.59.83.216 (talk) 08:28, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Relativistic time dilation[edit]

The reference to time travel refers to the "relativistic time dilation". But isn't this effectively slowing time, rather than time travel?122.59.83.216 (talk) 08:34, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
