The stars in the night sky will very soon be outshone by the glare of billboards – and in the not-too-distant future. That’s at least what Russian startup StartRocket has in mind as the company has announced plans to install a giant display at an altitude of nearly 500 kilometers.
What might look like a prank is, in fact, a fairly thought-out project. The company intends to launch 200 small satellites called cubesats that would constitute a sort of artificial constellation beaming with a commercial image or a message.
“Satellite reflectors use sunlight directing it towards the Earth so the cubesats satellite pixels will be turned on and off when we need while the entire display moves into the orbit showing messages or images,” project leader Vladilen Sitnikov told RT.
While using solar power is the cubesats’ primary energy source, the lightweight space objects are also equipped with engines so that they can be removed from orbit and burnt into the atmosphere once they’ve served their time.
