"I have a very high confidence that we can pinpoint exactly the track it's going to follow," said Andy Dantzler, the director of NASA's solar system division. In the unlikely event that in 2013 a transponder mission would still be necessary, there would be enough time for that and a deflection mission, if needed, he added.

Okay, aren't these the same government bozos in charge when Rita and Katrina hit? Do we really want them to make this call when the stakes are so high?

Any way we can ask the ESA, the Chinese, Japanese or the Russians to put that transponder up there for us?

2036 is a ways off folks, but it isn't that fricking far off...
