SPACEFLIGHT NOW'S LAUNCH SCHEDULE

"June 5, 1783 - The first sustained flight occurred as a hot-air balloon was launched at Annonay, France, by brothers Joseph and Jacques Montgolfier. Their 33-foot-diameter globe aerostatique ascended about 6,000 feet. In September, they repeated the experiment for King Louis XVI, using a sheep, rooster and duck as the balloon's passengers."

"SpaceX was founded in June 2002 by Elon Musk; his vision was to build a simple and relatively inexpensive reusable rocket that would go into space multiple times; similar to the turn around time capabilities that commercial airliners currently exhibit."
Source: Wikipedia

"On April 8, 2016, Falcon 9 launched Dragon on a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station for NASA and, for the first time, landed the first-stage of the Falcon 9 back on a droneship in the Atlantic Ocean."

"And so we shall see if balloons can once again break barriers. Beginning more than two centuries ago, humans used hot air balloons to throw off their Earth-bound shackles for the first time. Today, Bigelow is betting that it is once again balloon-like technology will enable us to defy Earth’s gravity—this time escaping it entirely into deep space."

Will the score board reflect the above? It currently seems to be scored one point for silvers only.

The scoreboard does reflect the correct scoring system. A player must obtain at least one of each token (there are six different tokens this month) in order to score points on the board. This has yet to be achieved which is why each player currently shows a score of zero.

That said, you are correct in that the board does need an adjustment. What we have done is fix the tiebreaker. Everyone is currently tied with zero points so the tiebreaker criteria is currently determining the order of the board. The board now reflects the correct criteria which is what an individual's score would be if they did qualify with the six different tokens.

Can you keep this challenge going another month?
June is almost over and most people aren't even close to completing this challenge.

Nope, the deadline stands as initially stated.

These challenges are intentionally designed with varying levels of difficulty. You will find some months the requirements are easier to obtain than others.

Just in case he misunderstands, though, I want to clarify that there is always a month to finish games after starting them. Games that begin by the end of June still have until the end of July to finish up.

I very like reducing the points per game for going over certain amount of games. On that way, not always the ones who have plenty of free time and can play many games win the challenge.
It was enjoyable experience to play this month challenge, a lot of fun games and great set up for the challenge. =D>
