Can be seen form space

Maybe it can be seen form space but so what. The actual urban myth was that the wall was the 'only' man made thing that could be seen form space. I have variously heard 'from the moon' as just how high up 'space' is can be debated. In fact you can see it form space but only if you know where to look. A large number of other man made objects can be seen much more easily. This is plainly evident to anyone who has browsed Google Earth. Aside form this, the claim in this article was 'naked eye' where as the referenced article says a camera was used and the wall then picked out on the photograph. I hope this serves to explain why I have clipped out the line of trivia recreated below.
