Canadian firm plans to sell advertising on side of spacecraft

Geometric Space Corporation (GSC), a recent startup of Canadian Geometric Energy Corp., plans to use Space-X rocket to send an advertising satellite into space.

It hopes to sell advertising on the side of a spacecraft and said it will be accepting payment in cryptocurrencies like Dodgecoin.


Though the in-orbit satellite cannot be seen with the naked eye from the Earth, a high-tech selfie-stick attached to the side of the satellite will film the displays, which can then be streamed live on YouTube or Twitch for viewers on the ground.

“There might be companies which want to depict their logo… or it might end up being a bit more personal and artistic,” Samuel Reid, CEO and co-founder of the company, told Business Insider. “Maybe Coca-Cola and Pepsi will fight over their logo and reclaim over each other.”

GSC, a research and development firm founded in 2015, provides CubeSat rideshare programs, dedicated FireFly Alpha launches, and satellite data services.
