Russian startup “StartRocket” intends to bring to market a product, which suggests that large brands pay is drastically noticeable. We are talking about the creation of man-made constellations in the night sky, which will consist of groups of microsatellites.

Their technology Russian innovators called “Orbital Display”, it is based on managing the fleet of satellites format “cubesat” that heap will be placed in orbit of 400-500 km, which will fly over the Ground at high speed, remaining in sight several minutes. Notice satellites, observers from earth can with the help of the reflected light from the buildings and their relative positions will form the pattern of the brand logo or advertising signs.

The launch of the first batch of satellites planned for 2020 to 2021-th startup is already planning to start providing services to display ads in the sky. Experts do not see problems in the technical part of the project, it is relatively easy and cheap, although the final picture will little resemble the current colorful renderings. The problem in the legal field. It is unlikely that the governments of all States will give the nod to flight over their territory of these satellites, and even with a demonstration of the annoying ads.

However, the founders StartRocket there is a strong counterargument. In the spring of 2018 NZ startup Rocket Lab has already launched a similar machine, a brilliant star “Star of humanity”. The precedent is there, and as soon as humanity will inevitably master the middle space and build a station in orbit, it would be nice to stake out a perspective direction of activity now.
