@chrisjbillington ok i yield haha

cmon guys, they will do it on the day , believe 😂

@Blomfilter Buy more Yes then :p

@Mqrius That's within the time limit, why are you buying NO

@chrisjbillington He is off a lot, but his short term predictions seem to be significantly better than his long term predictions. Of the ones that have 20-90 days projected (this one is in the middle of that range) he was close enough on about half of them. So I give this like 45%.

@ShadowyZephyr how about this one. Six weeks counting from June 25th gives August 6th before factoring in Elon time, before static fires etc of the retrofitted vehicle can begin. Eight weeks from June 14th as in the above tweet gives NET August 9th for the flight test. I don't see it. Realistically I think ground testing with the new pad and retrofitted vehicle might begin in late August if we're lucky.

predicted YES

@chrisjbillington I think it's >25% but not >50%. The fact that we have almost an extra month matters a lot. Before end of july, no chance.

predicted NO

@ShadowyZephyr "That's within the time limit, why are you buying NO"

I mostly posted it because it's a new data point, then I bought no because it seemed overly optimistic. I mostly agree with your probability range, but 20 days ago the market was around 50%

Please ignore. Wrong thread.
