Lunar Zen Garden

As a meditative focus for the Earth
  [vote for,

Rake lovely swirling designs over the entire lunar surface. Once created, this testament to our aesthetic and mystical sense will last for thousands of years.

(?) Pluter was told by an authoritative voice to “rake the moon”. http://www.halfbake...20with_20the_20Dead

(?) did we go to the moon? http://www.redzero.demon.co.uk/moonhoax/
In response to the conspiracy theorists... [RayfordSteele, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       The moon already has this; it's just not man-made. I like the design it has now, but I'm open to suggestions.

       Have fun raking the surface area of 3.792 x 10^8 km^2 with daytime temps of +107ºC, nightime temps of -153ºC and 1.624 m/s^2 gravity, trace surface pressure and no wind.

       I think it needs 'Don't Panic' written in the dust in large letters. Or maybe 'Mystery Science Theatre, 3000.'

       Warning signs, as well.

       I think I read something about a company that wanted to patent the rights to do laser advertising on the moons surface.   

       Or maybe I dreamt it, I don't know.   

       I'm not certain if there was a patent on it or not; I remember reading that Pepsi looked into doing this around Y2k or so. Maybe I read about it here.

       "may contain cheese"

       "Next services 385 Mm"
friendlyfire, Jan 19 2003

       "Beware of the Humans"
egbert, Jan 19 2003

       You're all missing the point - havn't we got to get there first?
yamahito, Jan 19 2003

       Detail, detail. That technology is baked, even if it's unlikely to be used in the foreseeable.
egbert, Jan 19 2003

       you sure?
yamahito, Jan 19 2003

       "Normal service will be resumed shortly."
dalek, Jan 19 2003

       - that we went there at all.
po, Jan 19 2003

       Yes, we were there. The lunar conspiracy theory is all based on bad science. See link.
RayfordSteele, Jan 19 2003

       A haiku for this fine idea: Surface-raking Sweep/ Exhibits Simplicity,/ Lunar quietus.

       One good thing about doing a zen garden on the moon is that there almost no erosion to degrade it.
Knife Knut, Jan 18 2005

       Most beautifull idea I ever saw on halfbakery.
zeno, Jan 18 2005

       The moon is fairly zen already, but it's a lovely idea.
wagster, Jan 18 2005

       Baked by James Bond in Moonraker? No?   

       Baked by aliens writing "All your base are belong to us?" No?   

       How wide would the rake have to be in order to see the design from Earth?
robinism, Jan 18 2005

       Testament to our *what*?   

       Bun for beauty.
baconbrain, Aug 07 2008

       Kudos to the similar brain to mine.
