# How would the entrance to a wormhole move through space?

Of course, this is all purely hypothetical since no one’s ever seen a wormhole before, but in my story, I have tech that “contains” the entrance to a small wormhole. Wherever the tech goes, the entrance moves with it, kind of like a sort of Marvel—Tesseract thingy. What I want to know is if the math that actually does predict wormholes tells us anything about the frame of reference they might use for positioning the entrance.

For example, if person X opens and stabilizes a wormhole, will the wormhole’s entrance remain motionless from the person’s point of view, the sun’s point of view, or the galactic center, etc? e.g. if it remains motionless from the person’s point of view, it will remain in the room it was created in, but if it remains motionless from the point of view of, say, the sun, it would instantly whiz away from the room it was created in due to the motion of the Earth in its orbit.

I hope that wasn’t too unclear, if you still need clarification, just let me know. Also, I totally get that no one actually knows this for sure, so I’m just asking for speculations here.

• As far as I know, there's not an actual answer to this question in real life, but every flavor of wormhole about which I know anything require either specific spacetime topological conditions or specific quantum-level conditions, which means the wormhole will most likely remain in place relative to its original gravitational or quantum reference frame. Basically, it would stay where it was opened, like a stargate does, and wouldn't just seemingly wander around all on its own. I think. Jul 7, 2017 at 21:02
• You can think of what happens at the Large Hadron Collider when new particles are made. They will have initial velocity but their reference is always with the initial creation because they are created on Earth and in an environment that moves with the earth. Jul 7, 2017 at 21:45
• Attach your wormhole to a ring made of unobtainium. Jul 7, 2017 at 22:40
