	Actually, advertising on the moon is probably possible with today's
technology. The lunar surface is "retroreflective" because it is so rough.
That's why the moon shines so brightly at full. Just send a lunar rover there
to drive around and flatten the dust. It could be solar powered. Have it
go back and forth drawing a giant "M" in tracks on a lunar Maria and it
should be easily visible in an amateur telescope...

	No, I'm not advocating anyone DO that. :-)

	But I bet once there are colonies on the moon the tracks leading away
from them across the surface will become visible in a small telescope.
