Oh, that's not what I meant. Not to track the ones that come close enough to tag. To USE them as free sensor platforms that, in just a few years at
this rate, would be crisscrossing all over the Solar System. It'd give everyone here a near complete look around the whole thing at once if computing
power could properly handle all the feeds and correlate them properly.
All for the cost of sensors that would survive the shot into whatever is passing us and acceleration up to it's speed, right? (Guessing on the main
technical challenges by what seems logical). It'd save 100's of billions in what it would cost to make that many probes with their own propulsion to
reach the speeds these are already going. Wouldn't it?
Like this one...going off, who knows quite where? Could be interesting data coming back from some of these. It's shallow arc just looked interesting
in asking the where question.
