Astronomers around the world are trying to track down a small, fast-moving object that is zipping through our solar system.

Well anyway, the thread is redundant, but I was thinking -- if we had a pre-prepared probe ready to attach itself to another such object in the future, we could get almost a free ride out of the solar system, with a package of sensors / instruments or something, or even just attach ashes of dead people or whatever for an interstellar ride into the unknown.
This object is going out of the solar system. Wouldn't it be neat if this happens again, and if we can detect it soon enough, to hitch a ride next time?
