The only reason I put this here is that we might have time to send a flyby to this monster?

What a unique opportunity to examine a 'pristine' and enormous Oort cloud comet!

There's not much time though, 2031 is really close, but even if there's no mission, by then there will be
a whole new generation of ground and space based assets to see the show. I imagine
that if its as big as suggested one of the ELTs with advanced AO might even be able to
image the disk.
