well our little nuclear experiments are in no way close to the nuclear fusion of the sun....
in space with no material or mass to protect you the solar radiation is extreme..... far worse than standing, staring at a nuclear fusion reaction from 10 ft.
and as for lead.... just the smell of the amount of lead is likely to poison your blood!

So hypothetically if you could warp the space in front of a craft , you could just fall in the direction you wanted to go.
Felber's calculations show how to use the repulsion of a body speeding through space to provide the enormous energy needed to accelerate massive payloads quickly with negligible stress. The new solution of Einstein's field equation shows that the payload would 'fall weightlessly' in an antigravity beam even as it was accelerated close to the speed of light.
