Advertising: the next level
2016 will know a completely new form of advertising. 

Three engineering students of the University of Leuven (Belgium) are planning on sending a billboard into space at the beginning of 2016. The Spacebillboard exists out off 400 free spaces that can be bought by brands for €2.500. This way the students can collect about 1 million euro. 
Also other people can buy a space on the billboard to send their personal message outer space. This for €1 per sign.

What about the money? The spacebillboard isn't an attempt of the students to get rich very quickly. Their goal is to collect money for researching the CubeSat, a whole new type of satellite with the size of bread. With this satellite they could analyze for example the climate changes. The project is all about developing this mini-satellite and the advertising billboard will be attached to it.

If everything goes by plan, the SpaceBillboard will be launched in January 2016 in Brazil together with the satellite. It will be 500 kms high, it will have a speed of 27.400 kms/h and it will turn around the earth 15 times a day. Talking about the fastest advertisements in the world.. 

The billboard, however, won't be visible from earth. But you can see all the advertisements on the website:
http://spacebillboard.com. On this website you can follow the progress of the students, get more information and buy a space on the first SpaceBillboard in the world. Today, 6% of the board is sold.

- There is a very innovating idea behind this whole project but I'm really glad that the satellite won't be visible for us. Nobody should be able to take away our starry sky at night.
