Billboards in Space?

The brilliant stars seen in this image are members of the popular open star cluster known as the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters. The Hubble Space Telescope's Fine Guidance Sensors refined the distance to the Pleiades at about 440 light-years. The Fine Guidance Sensors are at the periphery of Hubble's field-of-view. They trace a circumference that is approximately the angular size of the Moon on the sky. They are overlaid on this image to give a scale to Hubble's very narrow view on the heavens.

Next up for space: billboards?

SpaceX is reportedly joining forces with Canadian tech company Geometric Energy Corporation to launch a digital billboard into space.

The companies will use an advertisement satellite called CubeSat that will display ads in space and will be able to bid on having their logos or ads on display.

Do you think billboards in space are necessary? What do you think of this next plan for space innovation?

Personally, I am not sure billboards in space are necessary.
