Here is what I hope is happening outside our suns gravity well.
Imagine if outside a heavy gravity well that all matter can move either at the speed of light or instantaneously like quantum entanglement. This would open up the Universe and might even indicate that it is smaller than we think.
What if Space/Time only exists withen or around gravity wells? We cannot know for sure because we have never measured anything outside of gravity.
The space between Suns could be a vast emptiness with a much different set of laws. What we see from other Suns and galaxies that also exisit under strong gravity wells looks to mimic our own experience but that is not proof that the laws of physics in between gravity wells is the same as it is inside a well.
The Probes may appear to disapear one day when they exit our suns influence as they may just instantly move to the next point in space were a gravity well exisist.
In other words...maybe outside gravity its all a wormhole.

October 15, 2009: For years, researchers have known that the solar system is surrounded by a vast bubble of magnetism. Called the "heliosphere," it springs from the sun and extends far beyond the orbit of Pluto, providing a first line of defense against cosmic rays and interstellar clouds that try to enter our local space. Although the heliosphere is huge and literally fills the sky, it emits no light and no one has actually seen it.
NASA's IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) spacecraft has made the first all-sky maps of the heliosphere and the results have taken researchers by surprise. The maps are bisected by a bright, winding ribbon of unknown origin:
