Welcome to the battle of the Double 3s!
Usual rules about being fully produced within the OP-1 and recorded to album, etc., and...
1. You must use at least one sample, but as many more as you wish, from the NASA Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/nasa
I believe these have been used in previous battle, but not as a rule. I have a particular fondness for NASA and space exploration, for a multitude of reasons.
2. At least 1/2 of the tune must be in an 'odd meter', i.e. not 4/4. You can do 3/4, 5/4, 7/8, 13/16, 63/64 etc. If you do something more ephemeral/ambient, at least try to make it sound somehow off-kilter, if you see what I mean. I know this will not always be easy, esp. when it comes to looping on tape... but that's the challenge!
3. Feel free to use any internal synth or stock drum kit, but no other samples that are not from NASA.
4. Have fun and enjoy yourself.
