The robustly hyperbolic asteroid A/2017 U1's arrival (IAU Minor Planet Center 2017a) seems fortuitously timed to coincide with the revival of the AAS Research Notes. Both the sparse facts surrounding A/2017 U1's properties and trajectory, as well as its apparently startling ramifications for the planet-formation process, are readily summarized with N_(words) < 1000.
