[The Chosun Ilbo, March 19 2008] Space Advertising Plan Thrown in Doubt

Korea's plans to advertise in space are in limbo after Russia abruptly changed its mind on the idea.

An official with the Korea Aerospace Research Institute on Tuesday said Russia changed its mind recently and decided not to allow the Korean astronauts to carry corporate logos on their space suits in order to maintain their dignity as astronauts.


Corporate ads have been sent into space several times already, including on space probes and the international space station.
