I know about cosmic strings. They are 1-D topological defects in space-time which may had been created during the symmetry breaking phase transition during the big bang. But my question is : Are there any ways using which we can create cosmic strings? And if there are any ways then what are those ways?

  • $\begingroup$ These are entirely hypothetical at this point in time. There is AFAIK no widely accepted evidence they actually exist. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Have you read about the energy in, say, 1 meter if cosmic string? Do we have that energy available? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I know that a cosmic string have extreme amount of energy, that is why we cannot create one right now. But I wanted know about a theoretical way of creating a cosmic string. $\endgroup$ Nov 16 '20 at 3:32
