Russia tested lasers for displaying advertisements in the starry sky

The Russian company Avant Space has completed tests of a block of lasers, which will later be installed on miniature satellites to display advertisements from space. The agency announced this yesterday TASSreferring to the developer.

Equipment tests were carried out at an altitude of about 30 km. As a result, the design power level of the aforementioned light sources has been fully confirmed.

Recall that the company Avant Space plans to launch a swarm of mini-satellites into low-earth orbit, equipped with an ion propulsion system and a bright light source. Such cubesats will be able to line up in the so-called constellations that are not inferior to Venus in their brightness, and will display any logo or inscription directly from space.

The developers assure that their vehicles will not interfere with astronomers. Space advertising will be shown only at the moment the swarm of satellites flies over large metropolitan areas, without leaving them. At the same time, it will be possible to track the coordinates of the appearance of such constellations using a special application on a smartphone.

Avant Space stressed that an algorithm for the system that allows the use of satellites as “pixels” has already been developed. The latter will automatically line up the spacecraft in the sequence necessary to form a given logo in the sky.

The swarm of mini-satellites is scheduled to be launched into orbit in 2023. According to the developers, more than 1 billion people will be able to see their ads in the sky.

    - No ... - cool ... - Took and organized a giant open-air show ... a giant expensive mega-concert with the participation of the most famous and popular super stars of show business ...
    - Music thundered; huge holograms reproduced all kinds of plots; and laser beams pierced the night sky and showed intricate geometric shapes ...
    - And at the same time ... - all these multi-colored lasers (which depicted intricate geometric shapes); these powerful lasers ... - destroyed, cut, shredded, burned, turned into dust satellites, intergalactic stations, all kinds of spacecraft, all elements of space reconnaissance and space strike UAVs ... - all the space power of their enemies and adversaries ...
    - And the time of the concert (which was held on the ground) was calculated as follows; so that it coincides with the maximum presence of all these enemy space elements in the reach zone of these "holiday lasers" (and some of them ... are spy satellites ... - so they themselves would flock to the lights of this festival held on earth .. ) ....
    - Like this ... under the "festive noise" ... - and the entire space fleet of the enemy ... - and destroyed ...
    - I would like to know personally ...: - And lasers have already learned to recognize "who is who"; do they already have the function to define "friend or foe" ???
    - Otherwise, you can burn your own "spacecraft" ... - Most likely lasers are still very far from such "advanced" ...

    What progress has reached ... They also say that we are backward and we have no technology.

    All this is being prepared for the Antichrist ...
    He will show false miracles in order to outwit Christians ...
    Antichrist will declare - that he is Christ ... And many will believe him ...
    Then he will declare himself the king of the Russian people ... and will conquer the whole world ...

    I hate advertising on TV and the Internet, and they also want to shove it up into the sky! Gentlemen, don't you think that this is already too much and smacks of human rights violations and fascism ?! People should be able to take a break from advertising nonsense, at least in nature!
