One reference for this is the interesting discussion on the detection of wormholes between Geoff Landis, John Cramer, Greg Benford and Robert Forward.

Quote:Because if you have a wormhole, and mass passes through it, it sort of trails its gravitational field lines, and so on the way in it increases the mass of the wormhole mouth, and on the way out it decreases the mass of the wormhole mouth. This will be sort of dynamically unstable, because the the object gets on the positive gravitational end, the more mass it will attract and suck through, and therefore the more negative the other end will get.
These august gentlemen seem to think that such an imbalance might not be a problem, so long as you are prepared to put up with an unbalanced wormhole.
