Beer ads are still ok, though, right?

This is one of those things that you really don't want people to attempt even though it's wildly impractical to get even a smidgen of the way there.

What if the moon is actually smooth and some crater company has been projecting craters onto it this whole time..

Personally, I think it's a foolish world that doesn't take advantage of the wide open sky for advertising. The heavens should be littered with Pepsi ad satellites and such, for the whole world to see - blinking large and loud as moons of their own. I would love to read Burma Shave ads backgrounded by the Milky Way, and see spectacular, cosmic underwear ads in the skies at night.

Good. If if it isn't sacrilege, it's vandalism and creating a public eyesore.

That would be awesome. You'd be so distracted by all that light pollution you'd never even hear the sound of the bullet you'd fire to end your own life.

And unfair to the few still-uncontacted tribes out there.

/not sure how much energy it would take to make just a visible spot on the moon, never mind a whole image. SOunds like it would be a LOT.

No wonder it has been 40 years since we were last on the moon. If NASA employs people that are incapable of doing a quick back of the cigarette pack calculation to check how much energy it would take to actually project enough light to make an image visible from earth on a quarter of the near surface of the moon, then there surely is no hope of us ever going back.

Then again, maybe it has been 40 years because we all stopped smoking and don't have cigarette packs handy to do those quick calculations.

But on the plus side, they do have the right percent of brown, white, female people now that qualifications beyond gender and skin tone are out the window and space related goals are grounded.

You got that from the article? What I got was they didn't want any lasers pointed that could hit the IS, nothing about the notion that the stunt could be accomplished.

That picture taken in the dark with the police car - the person on the right really looked to me like it was a woman wearing a panty or bikini bottom. Had to watch the video. Unfortunately, I am disappointed.
