Rolling Rock beer... Never heard of them before... Surely this is some sort of attention-grabbing prank?

At least the website is fun.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

There is a mirror on the moon so that earth can bounce laser beams off it and check the distance, so firing lasers at the moon is not a problem.


Now, waving a laser beam around to produce a logo, though feasible, is going to be frought with all sorts of optical problems as well as the biggie... will anyone see it? The reflected light off the moon will be much stronger than any laser beam intensity once it's gone to the moon, and certainly by the time it's bounced off the surface and the small fraction of laser light has come back to earth.

Howard Stern is advocating placing a large Sirius logo on the face of the moon. I think if he can figure out a way to do it, he should.

It's not like any laws apply to the moon, so I say kudos to the first person who can do it. Advertising on the moon so that everyone could see it would be the absolute pinnacle.

Entrepreneurs and ad folks have been coming up with these schemes for years. For instance:

A few years ago, a company called Space Marketing, Inc. (SMI) came up with a plan to send a mile-long billboard into space. Coated with reflective plastic, the billboard would beam down a corporate logo that appeared as large as the moon, and as it orbited the Earth, would be visible to every single person on the planet.
