No, you can’t see the Great Wall of China from space. It’s a cool myth, but it’s still a myth and has nothing to do with reality. NASA confirmed it, and now you know it too.

It’s dark, and you can’t see anything. There’s slime all over. The ground is soft and moving. You try to find your way around by feeling the moving walls around you. After a while, you hear some painful screams in the distance. You call out for help, but no one responds. You’re a captain of a ship, and you were just consumed by the mighty Kraken. You keep tumbling over, not knowing if you’re even going in the right direction. The screams get louder and louder. It’s only a matter of time before you see someone. As you make your next step, a large piece of wood swooshes past you, almost knocking you down. That piece of wood was from the ship that the Kraken had swallowed. It had also swallowed the entire crew alive, so they must be somewhere inside the beast’s belly.
