if i go through a wormhole aren't i traveling faster than light or does this have something to do with space-time? is there an equation for a spacewarp or are whormholes just sci-fi? how do i inform myself about the physics of wormholes?

Wormholes work on a different principle. At no point do you travel faster than the speed of light between two points because the distance between the two points becomes zero (or as small as possible).

Wormholes a strictly theoretical at the moment and there is no direct evidence they exist.

sure i can travel faster than the speed of light

Not appropriate and a waste of a post.

correct me if i'm wrong but,when we use the equation E=mc^{2}the mass [m] no longer remains the same [constant] at higher speeds....the mass is then expressed as

m=m_{o}/[1-(v/c)^{2}] ...so,as v [speed] approaches c the denominator approaches infinity....

thus,this tells us that to achieve the speed of light infinite amount of energy is necessary..

which is practically not possible..

Correct, you require infinite energy for

*any*object with mass to travel at c.
