The article presents a discussion on space ads. One unnamed company's plans for just such a giant collapsible billboard led the U.S. Congress five years ago to ban certain types of space ads, which the FAA has clarified as those capable of being recognized by a human being on the surface of the Earth without the aid of a telescope or other technological device. Rand Simberg of Transterrestrial Musings doubts the FAA's authority to enforce the ban. Further, he says, the scenario it describes is pollution, not advertising.
