Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to show that wormholes in noncommutative geometry can be macroscopic, based in part on an earlier study. The necessary violation of the weak energy condition is attributable to the noncommutative-geometry background rather than to the use of ``exotic matter." The zero tidal forces make the wormhole suitable for humanoid travelers. Also discussed is the stability to linearized radial perturbations.
