If it hits I sure hope we'll be able to determine that early on. So people can get moving on some global defense systems. (though I bet Russia will use their veto against it in the security council).

I don't hope we'll find out too soon though. Because then everyone will be like "Well, that's years away. We can relax for now" and then people will remain complacent until it's like a year away and then we just panic.
