An advertising satellite is preparing to launch soon aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to display advertisements in space.
After a clever trick from the head of a Canadian startup, his company succeeded in collaborating with American billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX to launch satellites specialized in displaying advertisements in space, the first of its kind.
The CubeSat satellite will carry on one side a screen dedicated to displaying advertisements in space for the people of the planet to watch, through the technology of live broadcasting through the official channels of the Canadian company, on YouTube and Twitch.
The moon is being sent by Canadian engineering startup CubeSat via a Falcon 9 rocket with one side featuring a pixel display displaying ads.
The company then has a selfie stick emerging from the satellite to capture the screen and send the image back to Earth.
Samuel Reed, CEO of the Canadian Engineering Energy Company, said that the advertising satellite will soon be launched on board a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and it is expected to happen next year 2022, but the company has not specified in which month exactly yet.
The partnership between the Canadian startup and SpaceX was not easy, especially since GEC does not have the same status as the space giant, and in 2018 the head of the Canadian company presented the matter to SpaceX, but he did not receive any response, and SpaceX did not take the matter seriously.
