RE: Turning Explosions Into Thrust

Interestingly, it's a rather old idea. From the wikipedia article on nuclear pulse propulsion:

The idea of rocket propulsion by combustion of explosive substance was first proposed by Russian explosives expert Nikolai Kibalchich in 1881, and in 1891 similar ideas were developed independently by German engineer Hermann Ganswindt.
