An ad in space can come as cheap as 200 pounds!September 19th, 2008 - 6:56 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 19 (ANI): A firm in the United States is offering companies a chance to advertise themselves in space- with price ranging from 200 pounds to 2,100 pounds.
JP Aerospace, which calls itself “America’’s other space programme,” is using lighter than air balloons to carry packages into the upper atmosphere.
The organisation involving voluntary staffers and plans to open up access to space to the general public, said that they have received requests to send toy figures, coffee beans, table tennis balls as well as advertising billboards in the space.
The balloon carrying the platform reaches a height of 20 miles, which is high enough for the sky to turn black and the earth’’s horizon to be a blue curve.
JP Aerospace then takes hundreds of pictures of the balloon before returning everything to earth by parachute.
“Companies are looking for ways to get above the over crowded field of advertisements, the Telegraph quoted John Powell, President of JP Aerospace, as saying.
“There are a lot of race cars and basketball stars out there, but, not too many spaceships, they get noticed. The field is wide open,” he added. (ANI)
