Honestly, though, such a probe would probably arrive to find the

makes it.  :)

Yeah, I think getting "lapped" by the technology of our own future
generations is a real possibility.  Bummer for the crew that chose
to travel in suspended animation to be the first to arrive, and when
they wake up, they've already missed the party!
