Should we have occasional fireworks displays on the moon?

Something to look at- maybe once a month?

How about a giant LED screen with cool, original tv shows?

    Fireworks won't work on the moon. No oxygen to burn to make fire or explosions.

    I think it would be a better Idea to cover the Moon with Mirrors

    Turn it into one big Disco Ball

    Wouldn't work, geniuses...

    Fire(work) requires oxigen. The moon doesn't even have an athmosphere

      Fireworks carry their own oxygen in the form of nitrates.

    Well, to even *see* fireworks, they're going to have to be very hefty... you may have to resort to nukes.  Here's an example:  https://youtu.be/GGV-mVDlQvc

    Sorry, that won't work.

    It is difficult to get a "feel" for how large the Moon is and how far away it is. If you put the largest nuclear weapon we have on the Moon and detonated it, it would not be visible from Earth with the naked eye.

    You mean on its dark side .

    Let's price that out:

    $10K for orbiting Earth with a one pound package.

    $30K per pound to go to moon and hit it.

    $20K more to do a soft landing.

    So economical to do fireworks there. And you have to do the show on the shadowed side of the moon only during one week of the lunar month. The other 3, the moon is in daylight or too bright a sunlit background.

    Same problem with an LCD panel. And it would have to be as big as Delaware in order to see any detail on it even with a telescope.

    So inexpensive, so practical.
