Since SpaceX is going to do a world first recycling of an orbital class booster stage, its time to recycle the NSF SpaceX Landing Bingo!!! 

CRS-8 Was Great, so the booster is set to fly once more in SES-10 HERE WE GO AGAIN. Will the streak continue? Will Optimus Prime have a tantrum and throw the booster overboard? Your guess is as good as anyone's as we play!

SHOTGUN START IN EFFECT

Due to improved landing accuracy and to ensure a fairer attempt for all players at the most important center squares, this bingo iteration will have a shotgun start.

Only picks placed after 0700 PDT, (1400 GMT) March 26th 2016, as logged by the board will count. NOW OPEN!!

Expect a land rush, so accurate clocks, alarm setting and game play must be considered as editing your pick after placement is still not allowed. So if everyone immediately goes after the same center square not everyone is going to get it and by the time you refresh the board or look at the scraper it may be too late, so tactically picking other than the absolute middle at the outset might be the better option ;)

Except for the shotgun start... the  game remains exactly as played in prior iterations. If its not broke don't fix it. :)

 - CRS-8 ( http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=39977.0 )
 - JCSAT-14 ( http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=40219.0 )

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

This includes post landing walkabouts and Roomba machinations.

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!

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:

NOTE: There may sometimes be a slight delay of a few minutes at most between scraper updates, so check the last few posts before yours too, just to be sure. Scraper is operational as of this edit.  Thanks to DanielW for setting the scraper up, it helps a lot!

Judging is by me, Helodriver using imagery of OCISLY sailing back into the harbor to help determine a winner. Rocketcams, helicopter or drone shots, and landing coverage will also be used, but where it sits at the time of unloading will be final.  Post landing movements by Roomba, if such a thing is possible, will definitely add a twist of uncertainty. :)

Winner gets a SpaceX artifact, which has been recycled from its original purpose into a suitable prize. Winner also gets a one year L2 membership for free. If a current L2 member, you can donate it to another member (or add it to your own term length).


Good luck SpaceX, Good luck SES-10, and Good luck to NSF readers!

OK, this begins in one hour from now (check the timestamp per your timezone). Personally think it's a bit crazy having a mad rush, but Helo set this up, so.... his bingo, his rules ;D

Hopefully not too many people jump at the same squares in the opening minutes (Sunday should help, site is quieter on a Sunday) and then you can just keep checking the scraper and the thread to see which ones are available.

DO NOT POST UNTIL THE TOP OF THE HOUR. JUST READ THE INSTRUCTIONS (did you see what I did there) ;)

NOW OPEN!! GO GO GO!!

The scraper will disallow early votes.

Space is not Highlander.  There can, and will, be more than one.

K20 sounds good to me. All my previous picks have been biased right.
