Connecting the earth to the sun via portal.

Postby andykhang » Sun Jan 08, 2017 11:53 am UTC

Assuming I want to destroy the earth via a portal that would connect the sun and the earth (thus, closening it physical distance in space-time) to destroy it via tide different. Just how big would it need to be, in order for it to work?

Apart from the "stream of plasma" thing, I've always wondered what happens with gravitational potential if a mountaintop portal links to a valley-bottom one (even assuming you air-sealed it against the pressure differential, or just moderated the potentially dangerous flow through a perpetual-motion wind-turbine perhaps used to self-power the portalling method). It would of course depend upon how the portal actually works with/in space-time.

So the same question about its nature would apply to your posited problem, if that's what you're meaning with the tidal reference. (It'd be nice to know if 'gravity' emanates as if entirely from the disc of the portal, if a disc it effectively is, or if it works as 'line of sight' radiating from the open side of the hole, or 'diffracts' outwards around the edges. If it's a bidirectional disc1 then does it matter which side faces the main gravity and which side at the other end faces any particular subordinate mass? Or if itvs a spherical interface inwards mapping to a spherical interface outwards, is it 'corrected' for mirroring of matter, even, with awkward questions about Pi as you travel across the necessary distortions? All these questions and more can he assumed to have a certain answer, but can also vary according to the desired hypithetical...)

1 A -> | <- B = portal 1
B <- | - > A = portal 2 (or vice-versa)

Could you specified those detail, one-by-one? Like what would happen with each of those?

Also I think that it's act like a wormhole or something...
