Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

comment Why will an accelerated electron emit a photon?
This is a hard question to answer without going into the maths. The simplest explanation I can find is cv.nrao.edu/course/astr534/PDFnewfiles/LarmorRad.pdf

comment Can a wormhole be created in space?
Your question is too braod as it stands. You're effectively asking for us to write a summary of wormhole physics. You really need to read around the area a bit and come back to us if you have any specific questions. Searching this site will find many related questions e.g. physics.stackexchange.com/q/69521 and the links therein.
