They are packing!
And here she is in sunlight! $4 photo (I had to pay for Exploration Tower entry )
I do not think ASDS can park there permanently. This is Port Canaveral's container ship pier - currently there are no container ships scheduled, but the port works very hard to get them here. They purchased two cranes, they are working on getting a rail line to the port. So I guess the barge can park here for a few months but then it will have to be moved elsewhere.
Why instead of Elsbeth III can not be Go Quest standing next to ?
Looking back through this thread it seems that we first saw the ASDS in Jacksonville on December 16th 2014 in this post -http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=36326.msg1303622#msg1303622Its worth going back to look at not only that post (on page 2 of this thread) but also the posts preceding it to see how far we've come.And when did we see the ASDS depart Jacksonville? December 16th, 2015.http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=36326.msg1458379#msg1458379Seems as if one year would be a likely length for a lease.
Thats also a nice breaking point for the thread. Its just a few days older than a year now. New port, new thread, hopefully successful catch of a falcon soonish..
