FAA: No Advertising In Space

Hoping to protect outer space from becoming just another ad filled medium - and you know it will without regulation - the Federal Aviation Administration made a proposal yesterday to amend its regulations in order to insure it would be able to regulate advertising in space. Apparently, a huge billboard placed in space could appear as large as the moon and be readable without a telescope. We guess Golden Palace is out of luck on this one. Thanks John.

newsflash to the FAA: space isn't owned by the United States!

The solution is very easy. Keep the ads just below! the stratosphere. That way it is staying out of "space"....and its better seen because it will have much less distortion caused by the earth's atmosphere. You could actually say that the FAA is temporarily helping the "sky-marketing"(oooo thats a doozy). The sky-marketers could care less about outer space...they just want an outragously stupid advertising ploy. If an issue of far how up?.....you must remove those stupid beach signs, all ballons of any kind(especially Bransons), planes with any letter such as the airlines name, etc. The biggest advertising medium in human history are the stars above. By connecting the dots...you can actually form the words...Virgin Airlines.

ohhhh....The FAA mentions the DESTRUCTION of the night sky. Damn sun is the destroyer of darkness.
It also might hinder astronomers. What hinders astronomers is being stuck on earth. Get the camera device on the other side of the space billboard where it will be out of the atmosphere.......and astronomers would have the most consistant, clear, constantly available, accurate, well defined, amazingly detailed photos,spectrums, and information beyond the wildest dreams of any astronomer that has ever lived. I think the FAA meant astrologers. They always live in the dark.

What's your point kb? Did the FAA ever claim it was? Are they interfering with some big space advertising campaign you had planned? Or are you just jumping on any farfetched opportunity to vent your hatred of the US?

Just to make sure....the first rant was a Kb..... I'm KAB. Unsure as to where a particular hatred of any country got into kb's sentence. Remember the billboards are geocentric. Any particular country is irrelavent.
Hatred is everywhere amongest humans and the billboards could care less. Advertising=Hatred.....I knew it.
