Moon Advertising

You've probably heard Google had planned on doing this. I now hear that Rolling Rock beer is trying to do it also. Can you imagine going for a moonlight walk on the beach as ads flip across the moon?

Will they use paint or plant flowers in a pattern?

Since there is no air resistance on the moon, you can fling dust with the same accuracy as a baseball. The dust will fall in a perfect parabola. It would be easy to design rockets that spray colored dust in a pattern. Then the moon could be an ad for anyone's logo.

I thought they might actually use a satelite equiped with powerful lasers to project the images. Upload new images from Earth to the satelites computer, and cha..ching! $$$

Sounds like a nice case for viral advertising.

I wish that some sort of international law could be passed to prevent this from ever happening, but that's just me.

Don't everyone get bent out of shape over this. It's just an ad campaign designed to get people riled up. There will be no "moonvertising", unless Rolling Rock has access to military-grade lasers from the future.

It's actually pretty easy and requires no lasers. You don't have to actually do anything to the moon, you only need to fool the human eye into seeing an image where the light reflects off the moon's surface. This could be accomplished using ordinary household items and a little bit of plutonium.

You wouldn't by chance have a brother named Lex, would you.

Or you could just do the "magic eye" thing and it would look like there are two moons.*
