To Travel in Space, Slide Down a Wormhole

That's how Anne Strieber thinks the beings we call "The Visitors" get here.

In New Scientist, Sandrine Ceurstemont explains how you would do it: "First, you free fall through the outer horizon of a black hole. Once you reach its inner horizon, you see an infinitely-energetic flash of light from the outside world containing an image of the entire history of the universe. In a real black hole you would be vaporized by the burst, but the visualization assumes you have superpowers to survive it.

"As you emerge from the black hole, you enter a wormhole where the flow of space turns around and you start to accelerate back outward. The wormhole ends at the entrance to a white hole, which is a time-reversed version of a black hole. Instead of falling inward, space falls outwards at a speed faster than light. Soon you experience another flash of radiation, this time containing a picture of the entire future of the universe.

"Moving through the white hole, you see a third flash of light as you reach its outer horizon. This time, a new universe appears, containing an image of its entire past. As the camera turns around, you can see the white hole from which you emerged and an image of the old universe."
