Great Wall Of China Seen From Space

ESA's Proba satellite here shows a winding segment of the 7240-km long Great Wall of China situated just northeast of Beijing. The Great Wall's relative visibility or otherwise from orbit has inspired much recent debate.

Well there's one urban myth that just turned into an urban fact. Now if we could just get rid of the myth that the wall predates the Ming dynasty.
