An advanced human civilization possesses Portal Engine technology built in to their ships. These portal engines produce traversable wormholes from one end (the ship’s end of the wormhole), and uses advanced mathematics and precise “wormhole shaping” techniques to create the endpoint of the wormhole in a reasonably precise point related to the ship’s destination. I’m struggling to determine how fast my civilization’s ships could travel this way. These wormholes would be on average about 320 yards in diameter at minimum. The travel distance is 60 billion light years without the use of the wormhole. (60 billion because I want the distance to be further than what we can observe with telescopes). Assuming the aforementioned diameter of the wormhole, and the 60 billion light year travel distance without the wormhole, what would the travel distance be through the wormhole? Some additional details:
- If necessary, the ships can use multiple wormholes to make the journey. So form wormhole, travel through it, create another, travel through it, etc.
