Gravitational lensing of wormholes in the galactic halo region

22 Apr 2016  ·  Kuhfittig Peter K. F. ·

A recent study by Rahaman et al. has shown that the galactic halo possesses the necessary properties for supporting traversable wormholes, based on two observational results, the density profile due to Navarro et al. and the observed flat rotation curves of galaxies. Using a method for calculating the deflection angle pioneered by V. Bozza, it is shown that the deflection angle diverges at the throat of the wormhole... The resulting photon sphere has a radius of 0.40 ly. Given the dark-matter background, detection may be possible from past data using ordinary light. read more
