Source: Discovery.Com http://tinyurl.com/75h4cwj Mon Nov 14, 201 What Are These Mysterious Lines In China's Desert? Analysis by Benjamin Radford [photo] A strange tangle of white lines in the Chinese desert has people scratching their heads and wondering who made them=97and why. According to a Gizmodo post "Why Is China Building These Gigantic Structures In the Middle of the Desert?" New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment? They seem to be wide lines drawn with some white material. Or maybe the dust have been dug by machinery. It's located in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, north of the Shule River, which crosses the Tibetan Plateau to the west into the Kumtag Desert. It covers an area approximately one mile long by more than 3,000 feet wide. The tracks are perfectly executed, and they seem to be designed to be seen from orbit. In examining this mystery there are a few things that should be cleared up. First of all, contrary to the Gizmodo headline, it's not clear that the image depicts "structures" at all. Because of the angle at which the image is photographed, the lines may simply be flat, like roads. In fact a close look at the image reveals that the lines appear to have sand blown over them in places, suggesting that they indeed have a smooth surface and are low to the ground.
