NSF SpaceX ASDS Landing Bingo is back for the inaugural launch and landing of the long awaited Block 5 booster carrying Bangabandhu-1 !

OCISLY has been waiting at sea, and the rest of the fleet has set sail from Port Canaveral  to catch the first landing of the brand new Falcon 9 Block 5 booster. Sporting titanium fins, new shapely legs and a sexy black and white color scheme along with a host of other reusability related upgrades, the definitive (until the next upgrade a few flights from now ;) ) SpaceX booster is ready to make its first of potentially many visits to the ASDS. Is it going to be a bullseye as the booster gently Kiss Kisses the deck of OCISLY or go Bang Bang the way of the FH core? Once again the game is afoot!

No shotgun start, the game is immediately open!

 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!

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, 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 this go around  - if it falls in the sea, no winners - no prize

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. 

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, courtesy of Mr. NSF himself, Chris Bergin. If a current L2 member, you can donate it to another member (or add it to your own term length).

The winner will also get a signed high detail SpaceX rocket picture from Spacecoaster Images taken by me, suitable for framing.


Good luck SpaceX, good luck Bangabandhu-1, and good luck to NSF readers!
