Text: Can you see the Great Wall of China from the Space Station, or is that just a myth? - Aidan
David Saint-Jacques: Very good question, Aidan. I asked myself the same question and I tried to see it, the Great Wall, but no, we couldn’t see it. Or at least I couldn’t see it. I think it’s because the Great Wall is not continuous. It’s just – it’s in small sections. It was never completed. They built it in small sections. So it’s like a dotted line, which is difficult to see from space. I haven’t been able to see it.
