Suppose for a moment that all of those concave Hollow Earth theories are actually true, that we are in fact living on the inside of the Earth with the universe around us and the sun on a battery, that if we were tunneling it wouldn't be in but out. That our antipode wasn't really around but above and that looking up at the stars was really looking at the lights of other cities.

If things were at rights in this outside-in Earth it would be the work of nothing at all to toss some tin cans with strings telephones to the other side of the universe, throw across paper airplanes with jello salads in their cargo holds, lower a basket with a fancy hat and a kitten in it all the way down. Gravity might be a problem, of course, but then I find that gravity is generally a problem anyway.
