#23 The Great Wall Of China Is The Sole Man-Made Structure Visible From Space

One of the biggest myths that we all were roped into believing was that the Great Wall of China is the only man-made object that is visible from space. While in reality, one can observe a lot of man-made structures depending upon the surrounding conditions of the objects.

According to scientists at NASA, it is very difficult to observe The Great Wall of China from the lower Earth orbit, as it gets camouflaged with its surroundings owing to the type of materials used in the construction of the wall.

It is further debatable whether one can see the wall from space with unaided eyes. While a lot depends upon the age and shape of the structures to be visible from space, they can certainly be viewed in radar images.
