Forty years ago man walked on the Moon. Where have we walked since? It is time that we find a way. Creating images on the Moon provides a commercial incentive for turbo charging space travel technology. Shadows are only the beginning. These advancements will eventually place robots on other worlds building space stations and planting crops.Shadow Shaping technology (patent pending) can create images on the Moon that may be viewed from the Earth. Future lander/robots will create ridges in the lunar dust that capture and shape shadows to form YOUR FOREVER AD.
