I realize the tremendous advances in the length of missions the last 20 years but I have a lay question so please don't beat me up. If an asteroid such as Oumuamua, billions of years old has the capability to still increase it's speed doesn't this open up new possibilities for extending missions in the future? Maybe different elements stored together that could be heated up on command to produce thrust. Something obviously works for asteroids and comets. Thank you
