NSF SpaceX ASDS Landing Bingo is back for the high energy Hispasat GTO mission!

The ships are afloat, the rocket is being readied, and SpaceX is going to push the boundaries of landing performance with a hot and hard landing attempt with minimal propellant reserves on OCISLY far downrange. Will the booster spear the deck at 300 MPH?
will the titanium fins flay the frothy surf as they sink to the briny deep? Or will fate be defied magnificently again and the booster stand centered in the X? No one knows yet, so 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. 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 Hispasat, and Good luck to NSF readers!

L-20, please.

Let's hope that the landing is successful.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

put me down for L23! also, that title...
H-22

Sorry typo!

Reminder to all... editing a post invalidates the pick...
Dan's scraper did not pick up these two entries...  :(
Suggest you enter a new post, then remove your old post, to fix issues in bingo threads...  ;)
