I voted 9. Based on ~13 launches.I think weather or launch profile will probably keep a few cores from being recovered, but otherwise I'm optimistic. The wildcard could be FH, esp. if they press to get that into service for customers.I started imagining if they pulled a hat trick on their FH demo. That would be something. As excited as everyone was with the recent landing, seeing a successful FH launch and watching 2 cores landing live at the cape, then getting images shortly thereafter of the 3rd sitting all happy on the barge. Wouldn't that make a statement.
voted 10 launches, and 13 recoveries just cause I'm being contrarian
So would someone who understands the definition used for this poll explain whether Jason-3 counts as an intact core returned in 2016?
Lar- why do you prefer that definition? Seems to have potential for ambiguity. My suggestion was that the stage ought to be secured, e.g. crane hooked on or chains bolting it to the deck (or whatever turns out to be the case)- it's a bit more black and white then.
Whoa! I thought I was everyone's favorite mod. Shocking denouement!My thinking on polls is that once you post a definition, you're pretty much stuck with it. Hence my reluctance to change the number of launches definition either, other than to tighten up any very minor loose edges. (how's that for a split metaphor?)Maybe we should have discussed it first and reached a consensus... but there wasn't time, and people voted based on this definition already. if we change it now, that's not fair to them, I don't think, as it might mean they wanted to change their vote. Nor is it entirelypractical to reset the poll after changing the definition, it might disenfranchise people who already voted and don't have time to vote again.Is there anyone here who thinks Jason3 should have been counted a success? This definition (barely) excludes it.1 - except for Chris, but he doesn't count, he's not just a mod...
Does Jason 3 count as at least half of a successful stage landing?

Stand by my post elsewhere this was a successful landing followed by a very rough taxi.
