Dystopian future? Billboards in SPACE could beam advertisements to Earth - but it would require a 'constellation' of 50 small satellites and cost $65M A study determined that it would take a constellation of 50 small satellites and cost $65 million to beam advertisements to Earth from space The satellites would have large reflectors that could bounce sunlight to Earth and rearrange themselves into different shapes to form logos or graphics 'Development of such missions has become a point of interest for a few space startups because the approach provides global Earth coverage,' the study says

The average person already sees up to 10,000 advertisements per day - but there's one place Madison Avenue has yet to conquer: space. 

A study from Russian researchers examines the technological and financial investments required to beam advertisements to all of Earth for a few months by using a constellation of up to 50 small satellites rotating around the planet. 

The researchers calculate that it would cost about $65 million and would require just over four dozen satellites that're about the size of a full paper grocery bag into what's known as sun-synchronous orbit - meaning they'd always be in direct sunlight as they pass around Earth. 

Although the average person sees up to 10,000 advertisements per day, Madison Avenue has yet to conquer outer space

In orbit, they would deploy large reflectors that could bounce sunlight down toward Earth. The satellites could rearrange themselves into different shapes to form logos or simple graphics. 

Those shapes could evolve over their
