How Wormholes Could Show Up in Gravitational Waves

Gravitational wave detectors have already spotted mysterious black holes. But something even stranger might be next: wormholes.

A black hole spiraling into a wormhole would create an odd pattern of ripples in spacetime that the LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave observatories might be able to pick up, physicists report July 17 at arXiv.org.
