Best. Wormhole. Ever!

Hi everyone, just a quick post today. As I'm going through the final edits for Escalation, I think of what it would really look like traversing a portal through space and time. I've seen a lot of movies and read many books with wormholes. And by far and away, Contact with Jodie Foster is the best scene for my money.
 
Most have seen Contact at one time or another. But the scene is worth watching again.

Question: What was the best wormhole scene you have read in a book or seen in a movie?

Enjoy, and see you for the Friday Follies!

  1. Good luck with the edits. I personally just want to step through the Stargate and end up in the Pegasus Galaxy.

    1. Alex, I haven't seen The Black Hole in over twenty years. I'll have to watch a clip on YouTube this evening as I don;t remember what the wormhole lookes like in that movie.

  3. good luck with the final edits. Really looking forward to the final product.
    The wormhole scene in Contact was amazing. I also liked the initial wormhole scene from the first first Stargate movie.

  5. Contact I think still remains the standard. But I'm willing to hear what others say about the matter.

  6. The wormhole in Contact is cool. I've been to the VLA's featured in the movie, too. They are really that big.

    1. Tyrean, love the Stargate wormhole. If I remember correctly, didn't they just find it by stumbling upon it by mistake?

  10. I chose orange and yellow for the colors for my wormholes. Blue was my first choice. But everyone uses blue. So I wanted to be different and hopefully stand out from the rest.

  15. Thanks for sharing the scene. Since I don't read or follow sci-fi, I hadn't seen a wormhole scene before. I love the space imagery!

  16. I'm not writing a scifi, but this post makes me want to introduce a wormhole into my book, just because. All the best with the edits, Stephen.
