This quarter's Writers Of The Future story

Today I finished (I think) the story I plan to submit to the Writers of the Future contest for this quarter.
Portalnaut is about 9,000 words. It is about exploiting a wormhole for transport between Earth orbit and Jupiter orbit. Luckily, physics allows for an 8.9 hour orbit around each of those planets that has the same gravitational potential and (at some point in every 8.9 hour orbit) matching velocity vectors. Note that there are no other planets in the solar system where conservation of momentum and energy can be observed in a wormhole jump from the Earth.

I plan one last "out loud" read before submitting it (by June 30).
