SCIENCE: Another Illusion Shattered

China admits that the Great Wall of China can not be seen from outer space. This was apparently common knowledge to people who follow these things, but I'd always heard it cited that the Great Wall was the only man-made structure visible from space (granted, it did seem odd that something that low and narrow would be visible from space).

Ya know? I never really bought that one. It's not even as wide (and space is definitely viewing from above) as a two-lane highway...

What about some of the major canals? they're wider, some are fairly long, and they're filled with reflective water! Bet you can see some of those...
