SpaceX JCSAT Don't Go Splat Landing Bingo
« on: 05/03/2016 08:07 PM »
OCISLY is at once more at sea trying to get a winning streak going and not a greasy streak burned across the deck! Its possibly going to be another "suicide slam" so how it goes is anyone's guess.

The game remains exactly as played for CRS-8 ( http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=39977.0 )

Pick your square, one per player. Closest square to the center engine when it comes to a halt gets the prize! 

No prize for fireballs, debris, or damage on deck!

If it hits the ship, goes kaboom, punctures holes in the deck, falls over in transit, or splashes down in the sea, there is no winner. Only a booster standing tall and triumphant as the ASDS sails into the harbor will generate a win! It worked last time so no need to incentivize failure ;)

Water squares are meaningless, if falls in the sea, no winners - no prize. Feel free to pick a water square just for "I told you so" bragging rights if you wish! ;)

This thread remains the official record of who chose what square when. For that reason any edited pick post is invalid.

Use Dan's scraper to see which spots have gone:

Judging is by me, I expect there will be many photographs of OCISLY sailing back into the harbor to help determine a winner.

Good luck SpaceX, Good luck JCSAT, and Good luck to NSF readers!

It is all well and good to quote those things that made it past your confirmation bias that other people wrote, but this is a discussion board damnit! Let us know what you think! And why!

Okay, now that I got to hit the center, I suppose I'm committed to hoping for unexpectedly calm seas and winds on landing so I don't miss by a scoot.  ;D

(Oh, who am I kidding.  I would be fantastically delighted to be off by two squares again and get to watch another triumphant return to port.)

Congrats on scoring a square so close to dead on!!!!

I am the closest to the center I've ever been either. And I'd be happy to miss by as many squares as necessary, as long as it stays on the ASDS...

I pinged Dan about resetting the scraper, which is still pointing to the old board as of this writing.

watch it decide that your square is L2 rather than K 20 ....

Edit:  That scraper is a Fair Dinkum Thinkum ...
