Wait a second - you're telling me that a probe has been traveling for years on end and will be precisely placed on an object moving several thousands of miles per hour, yet no one knows, even within a rough guesstimate falling within a minute or two, when a signal from the same probe confirming the landing will first arrive?

Maybe the probe delivery engineers should take over for the communications team...

The person who can smile when something goes wrong has thought of someone to blame it on.
