Main Portal
Ok I need to ask this because no one else has. What was the original point of the main portal in the game that goes to hell. Nothing in the game explains the main reason it's there and all I can think of doing is speculate. I think it's used for interplanetary travel. But where was the other portal in our plane of existence? Was it on earth? Any ideas?

it was discovered through research and UAC decided to explore the "other world" and bring back samples that prove humans weren't the only living things in the galaxy. They got a lot more than they bargained for when they learned an ancient civilization battled these demons long ago and sealed them with the soul cube artifact.

But yeah, they did kind of screw up the story in this game. Seeing as UAC was suppose to be some sort of factory to produce special military weapons, what was the portal suppose to be there for? It obviously wasn't built to transport/travel from Mars to Earth because, as you saw, the marine and Swann still flew the ship to Mars.

I also haven't read or listened to most of the PDAs during the game, so maybe some of those logs unfolds the purpose of the portal.

I pretty much listened to every PDA including the one where that one guy recorded all the events that happened. But I remember something like the hell destination was an accident or something like that which you indicated in a way by saying "discovered through research." I just find it interesting that no one in any Doom forum really discusses that portal's function considering the game says it was discovered by accident and never really explains why it was there in the first place. Any other people want to suggest any theories or have an idea?
