Although Im wondering.
Isnt it possible, that with this speed, collision with gas particles and micrometeors, electromagnetic induction from solar wind and magnetic field, will ruin its sensor arrays inside the Solar System?
Than it can still miss the Earth.
Doubtful, space is incredibly empty, but even if it did all it would take is an accelerometer to sense course changes and an internal map built up from before it went blind would ensure it hit.
