Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. Not happy with ruining the Earth, the advertising industry now looks to expand into space.

A new company is looking to sell advertising on the Moon, by using robots to carve out patterns in the lunar regolith. Bidding starts at $46,000.

Their website claims "twelve billion eyeballs looking at your logo in the sky for several days every month for the next several thousand years".

Well for starters it's a little grim they expect humanity to only be around for several thousand years. In reality the vandalism they would commit upon the Moon would be there for billions of years.

The next obvious problem is rights. No nation, company or individual can own the Moon, let alone have the right to vandalise it for billions of years.

Frankly, I think the people behind this little project should be sent packing, and hopefully nobody is dumb enough to bid on their malicious little project.
