Moon Publicity Strives to Plaster Moon With Ads
This idea is wrong in so many ways. Moon Publicity wants to utilize robots to create ridges in lunar dust on the moon and then use Shadow Shaping technology to form logos, domain names or other advertising. Claiming to have a patent on this technology, the company has gone as far as selecting areas for prospective buyers to choose from. Their spiel reeks of strange, anti-environmental greed, don't you think?
"Creating images on the Moon provides a commercial incentive for turbo charging space travel technology. Shadows are only the beginning. These advancements will eventually place robots on other worlds building space stations and planting crops."

Ok .. this would be a horrible thing. I wouldn't want the moon's image permanently damaged by some giant corporation sending a bot up there to draw lines into the dust over the course of a half or full decade or more creating some huge image we could never get rid of and see every full (or half even) moon. I would hope that something would be done to prevent such things before they happen.
