White Holes and Wormholes
Illustrations of White Hole and wormhole geometry, plus a visualization of what the view through a wormhole would look like. One of Andrew Hamilton's excellent pages about visualizing relativity.
Brief article by Matt Visser (Victoria University of Wellington) about why the concept of a wormhole, originally more science fiction than science, has become interesting for serious physicists.
