2015-01-10 CRS-5 NO JRTI-1 1, 2 first droneship landing attempt, first booster with grid fins, landing failed because the grid fins ran out of hydraulic fluid (open cycle system)
2014-09-21 CRS-4 NO ocean 1 booster ran out of oxygen
2014-07-14 Orbcomm-1 YES ocean 1, 2
2014-04-18 CRS-3 YES ocean 1 first successful ocean landing, first booster with landing legs
2013-09-29 CASSIOPE NO ocean 1 booster began to roll as it descended, centrifuging the fuel, and so starving the landing engine, the landing burn terminated early, and the booster impacted the ocean hard

I’m curious, how are you counting these to get 149 total landing attempts? I understand the 138 successes but I’m counting 154 total landing attempts in this list, 10 of which intentionally targeted the ocean instead of a pad or ship, so 144 total recovery attempts. Maybe I’m miscounting or missing some hidden logic.

The line-item detail is interesting and valuable, but it would also be nice to have totals for all attempts, all successes and current number of consecutive successes (length of winning streak). Ideally, those three numbers would be part of each line item showing their values as of the date of each individual attempt and, if successful, landing. Say the word and I’ll make a run at compiling such numbers myself for all past attempts and send them to you.

Right you are.
