Cosmic explosion or something

  1. Aug 4, 2008 #1
    Hey :D This is pretty far fetched but If scientists could predict a cosmic explosion or something similar in the universe... could we not have a space probe near the explosion (not too near obviously) and use the imense force the whip the probe out our solor system and behond?

    Erm, what? What would this "Cosmic explosion" be? I don't really understand why this is an issue, powering probes isn't a huge problem, to my knowledge. Please clarify what you mean.
