Instructions
• You have 10 votes.
• For each element of stage zero select one of these responses: NONE, DAMAGED, or BUSTED

Definitions
NONE           between zero to negligible damage; wear and tear needing expected upkeep
                       example: new paint for the OLM or tower

DAMAGED    notable damage which demands unexpected repair
                       example: the LOX and water tanks following OFT-1

BUSTED       significant damage, potentially needing replacement
                       example: the concrete pad following OFT-1


Wishing the very best success to SpaceX and OFT-2!
