The Physics of Stargates: Parallel Universes, Time Travel, and the Enigma of Wormhole Physics
Eridanus Press, 2010 - 384 páginas
An accessible introduction to modern physics that focuses on wormholes and discusses among other topics their structure, stability, dynamics, operation as time machines, utility as portals to parallel universes, and their implications for the distant future of humanity. Read the wormhole FAQ and the bullet point "principles" scattered throughout to quickly absorb the basics of wormhole physics. Go back and read the interstitial material for greater depth. Written by a physicist with years of experience in gently introducing physics to the mathematically challenged, it also covers the history of wormhole physics and delineates the unsolved problems at the forefront of research.
