Black holes are fascinating objects which pose interesting puzzles for quantum physics. Studying these puzzles we are led to quantum mechanical models that describe special black holes as seen from the outside. Extrapolating from these descriptions we conclude that entanglement can create geometric connections or wormholes. Moreover, quantum teleportation can be interpreted as traveling through the wormhole.
