You've probably asked yourself: how does a black hole form?
Well, to answer this question, it is necessary to go back in time and learn about how two extraordinary scientists went about formulating the existence of such massive bodies...
Many years ago, scientists Nathan Rosen and Albert Einstein formulated a scientific possibility for the existence of very strange bodies that appeared in space and allowed traveling! To honor the result of their collaborative studies, they named them the 'Einstein-Rosen Bridges.'
By this time, there was not the sufficient technology necessary to prove the existence of black holes. But the fascinating formulation of gravitational waves provided an open door to this study. It was formulated that gravitational waves were the consequence of the formation of black holes. This is because they create ripples in the curvature of space-time by which space and time becomes altered.

"The gravitational waves were detected on September 14, 2015 at 5:51 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (09:51 UTC) by both of the twin Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors, located in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington. The LIGO Observatories are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and were conceived, built, and are operated by Caltech and MIT." - LIGO
It is fascinating that after 100 years of uncertainty, LIGO confirmed Albert Einstein's theory.
Now, these same wormholes are formed by the death of a star. When a supernova collapses (bigger than the size of our local star - the Sun), black holes form. The fact that they are the products of the death of a massive star is absolutely astonishing.
Blackholes permit us to travel through time and through the far-ends of our galactic cosmos...
