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.

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.

When you are the moon, the best form you can be is a full moon. And then the half moon... he's all right. But the full moon is the famous moon. And then three-quarters, eh, no one gives a shiat about him. When does he come, two days in, to the calendar month? He's useless. Full moon. The moon. The main moon.

I'm hoping that Nasa knows that they wouldnt make it all the way to the moon, but I'm sure there worried about someone building the most powerful laser in the world and trying. I'm willing to bet they could build one that would at least make it to the ISS (given enough cash) and that may mess somethings up (as well as cause blindness in the astronauts)
