I would think that you could send anything through the supergate that would fit through a normal stargate. If you tried to send a starship through the supergate to a normal-scale gate, I believe it would either A) enter the buffer and just stay there, since the recieving gate is not large enough to either recieve or reconstruct the matter in the buffer, or B) overload and destroy the recieving gate, for the same reasons. It's been established that the recieving gate will not reconstruct the matter in the buffer unless it can do so completely; a cylindrical coring of the starship would not exit the recieving gate.
If this is accurate, then if the supergate could dial Destiny, supplies could be sent through. Maybe even a jumper...
Imagine being able to use a Jumper for missions where it feels more practical than the shuttle.
It would be quite crammed in the Gateroom though.
Based on the fact that the original team that was supposed to go through to wherever the 9-chevron address went was hand-picked for that job, it's probably safe to assume that at least a few of them have the ATA gene, Telford included.
That might be true.. but i doubt it.
Nope., since it is out of phase nothing from "our realm" affects it.. that would also go for powre.
BUT it makes me wonder would it not 'stay behind' when destiny goes into ftl?

We do know Mitchell went through trees, Daniel AND sam both went through tables.
For Example, they should theoretically not even be able to climb stairs, let alone being on a Floor with another room beneath if they can traverse Trees and Tables. I guess thats just something they didnt think of.
@Topic: I still think putting a Stargate near a Black hole should do the trick well enough. No need to involve a Supergate or Destroying a Planet.
You cannot send anything through a Supergate and have it materialise through a normal gate connected on the other end, think of it as a party hat, one end is big and wide and the other is a minute hole smaller than our eyes can see most of the time, if you dropped a ping pong ball into the wide end it wont come out of the thin end, thats just common sense.
But powering 2 normal size Stargates with black holes and sending stuff through them would be possible. It would be a pain in the arse to calculate addresses tho, not to mention whether or not it would work because Destiny would have to be in rather close proximity and 1 gate will superceed the other, odds on, it would be the Destiny gate taking presidence due to it being the only gate with a known address, this causes problems with power, stability and the fact i dont think a jumper can fit in the Destiny gateroom
as for the topic, i wonder if they could do the same thing that they did in the Pegasus project to get the wormhole to jump to the supergate. than they could somehow trigger the wormholes to jump from one gate to another (as they did with the bridge from the milkyway galaxy to the pegasus galaxy) and send supplies in a jumper to destiny.
Tptb just never bothered to explain, so we will never know unless they let it come into play in SGU.
