High Velocities Through Portals

    EDIT: Problem solved, the object would approach escape velocity (11km/s).
    I'm sorry this was a bad question.

    I think you should not confuse video games with what can be done in reality. It just seems like a waste of time.

    Video games are not real.

    GR's wormholes act more like the video game portals than one might think In particular, one can't use a single-valued potential function to describe them , in general one needs a mulit-valued potential function.
