Cubesats Create Giant Ads in the Sky

Here's a new word for 2019: cubesats. Cubesats are small satellites that orbit the earth, performing certain functions like research for example. Because they're small, presumably they are easy to get up there into space in multiples. Cubesats.

Well it didn't take long for marketing to figure out how to use cubesats too. In Russia, a few brands have been using them to create ads/logos in the sky to look like constellations. Brands like McDonald's and KFC for example.

Intrusive I know. But when used at the right time, could have pretty interesting applications.

What's your experience? JIM.
