It would not be the first time that ads have been sought in space. And it is that, as technologies improve, access to space is more and more affordable for all humanity. Now millionaires go to space, but soon anyone can place ads in the space (if you have money).

Geometric Energy Corporation, a Canadian research and development company, wants to launch a satellite capable of displaying advertisements. It is the same company that will take Dogecoin to the Moon. Essentially a billboard in space. The details have appeared in a Business Insider report thanks to an interview with the company’s CEO.

Buy (with cryptocurrencies) pixels in orbit

As reflected by the CEO of the company, they are developing a CubSat satellite that is equipped with a kind of selfie stick and a screen on one of its sides. The idea behind this CubeSat is that anyone buy a space to place their ad, image or text there. The selfie stick equipped with a camera will capture the images from the CubeSat and broadcast them live on YouTube and Twitch.

Generally speaking, what Geometric Energy Corporation proposes is a small screen in orbit where anyone can buy space to broadcast content for a limited time and affordably. The proof of it? The recording of the moment and live broadcast via streaming. Because seeing the tiny CubeSat from the surface is going to be impossible, not even with telescopes.

This was the (failed) project to create a giant billboard ... in space

How to buy ads on the CubeSat? They can be bought tokens to reclaim screen pixels. Each pixel and each of its properties a token. There are tokens to determine X coordinate, Y coordinate, brightness, color, and amount of time. Five factors that, with enough tokens, allow us to place what we want and how we want on the screen.

Are waiting place the CubeSat into orbit by early 2022. The CubeSat will fly into space aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which will release it into orbit before continuing on its journey to the Moon. At the moment, it has not been revealed how much the tokens will cost to place ads on the CubeSat.
