SpaceX CRS-6/SpX-6 Landing Bingo
« on: 01/13/2015 09:40 PM »
(Chris Edit: Now for the CRS-6 mission in April. Note, everyone - clearly and obviously wanting this to be a success - have filled out the middle of the ASDS. Don't feel obligated to pick a bad square against your will just to be involved. We'll do this again if the plan calls for it. Remember to check the link for square availability - and the last few pages which include squares taken before the latest update of the grid).

As you were! And let's see this stage riding back to port on the deck of the ASDS!  8)
)


---

Now is your chance to win some SpaceX swag (provided by me) and prove your predictive abilities by claiming where exactly the F9 stage will land on the ASDS.

Patterned after Cow Pie Bingo, in this game the person who claims the square closest to where the F9 center engine is if the stage lands successfully will be the winner. In the event of a landing like CRS-5, the ASDS square in the center of the greatest visible damage or with the largest wreckage on it when returning to port will be the winner. Should the rocket miss entirely, there will be no winner (just like the EDL team ;))  but if you claimed a water square and it can be determined where the splashdown happened in relation to the barge, you will get the prize.

The game is open to any NSFer, simply claim your square on this thread by listing its letter and number coordinates by letter first. Due to popular demand, only one entry per player, PERIOD, and I will occasionally update the Barge image with claimed squares. In the event of two or more players claiming the same square, the one with the earliest time stamp owns the square. Any edits to an entry are automatically disqualifying.

Each square is roughly the size of a Merlin engine bell and final landing location will be determined from all of the pictures that will be undoubtedly shot of the triumphant return of the stage aboard the ASDS. Any disputes will be judged solely by me and are final.

Good luck players and SpaceX!

The game is all in fun, and the prize is of quite low value but cool.

THE PRIZE NOW INCLUDES A FREE YEAR OF L2 COURTESY OF CHRIS!!!

Blank image now included for those who wish to edit it or work with it in some way.
