Company Announces Plans to Place Ads on Moon

Over the last week there's been tons of talk about NASA's moon landing in 1969. However, while we're all busy talking conspiracy theories and Apollo 11, one company is trying to cash in on the 40-year anniversary of the moon landing. How? Advertising, of course. Advertising on the moon.

Boasting the ability to penetrate "every market on earth" Moon Publicity says new shadow shaping technology means they can create images on the Moon that can be seen from Earth.

According to the press release, robots are used to create several small ridges in the lunar dust over large areas that capture shadows and shape them to form logos, domains names, memorials or even portraits. 

If that weren't bad enough, Moon Publicity goes on to appeal to the romantics of the world, claiming they can carve your initials in a heart to impress your loved one. Turning the moon into one giant spiral notebook with doodles all over the cover aside, the whole "no atmosphere on the moon" thing would means you'd essentially tattooing yours and someone else's name on the moon forever.
