    China: Google Earth spots huge, unidentified structures in Gobi desert

    Caude for speculation here.
    China: Google Earth spots huge, unidentified structures in Gobi desert

    Vast, unidentified, structures have been spotted by satellites in the barren Gobi desert, raising questions about what China might be building in a region it uses for its military, space and nuclear programmes.

    In this image there seem to be planes in amongst objects arranged in circles Photo: GOOGLE EARTH











    By Malcolm Moore, Shanghai and Thomas Harding, Defence correspondent

    1:50PM GMT 14 Nov 2011





    In two images, available on Google Earth, reflective rectangles up to a mile long can be seen, a tangle of bright white intersecting lines that are clearly visible from space.

    Other pictures show enormous concentric circles radiating on the ground, with three jets parked at their centre.

    In one picture from 2007, a mass of orange blocks have been carefully arranged in a circle. In a more recent image, however, the blocks, each one the size of a shipping container, appear to have been scattered as far as three miles from the original site.

    Another image shows an array of metallic squares littered with what appears to be the debris of exploded vehicles while another shows an intricate grid that is some 18 miles long.

    All of the sites are on the borders of Gansu province and Xinjiang, some less than 100 miles from Jiuquan, the headquarters of China's space programme and the location of its launch pads.



    The two reflective rectangles lie 70 miles from the nearest main road and there is no sign of any surrounding activity. However, Ding Xin military airbase, where China carries out its secret aircraft testing programme, is relatively nearby, at a distance of some 400 miles.
    400 miles in the other direction is Lop Nur, the salt lakes where China tested 45 nuclear bombs between 1967 and 1995.
    The purpose of the structures is unknown, but some experts suggested that they might be optical test ranges for Chinese missiles, to simulate the street grids of cities.
    Tim Ripley, a defence expert from Jane's Defence Weekly, compared the structures to similar grids in Area 51, the secret United States military test base in Nevada. "The picture of the circle looks very like a missile test range, with target and instrumentation set out to record weapon effects. The Americans have lots of these in Nevada – Area 51!" he said.
    Conspiracy theorists believe that Area 51 is home to the remains of an alien spacecraft found at Roswell, and there was no shortage on Monday of similar hypotheses about the Chinese sites.
    "It looks like our own Area 51," said one commenter on Baidu, a Chinese website. "Can it be an alien base," asked another. "It looks like solar energy facilities, with a walkway along the side," said a third.

    What is China building in a remote desert area? Vast, unidentified, structures have been spotted by satellites in the barren Gobi desert, raising questions about what China might be building in a region it uses for its military, space and nuclear programmes.
    The first image looks like a random arrangement of lines. Could it be a targeting grid for satellites? Perhaps they're roads? Some conspiracy theorists have suggested this pattern matches the layout of streets in Washington, DC. Maybe it's just the world's biggest QR code?...
    You can decide for yourself by looking at the structure on Google Maps here

    I zoomed in on one of those sites and check this out, this is definitely an arrow and the way the tip overlaps the 'road' would suggest it's no accident.

    If you zoom right into the second photo, you can see the terrain has not been altered. It looks like the markings have been painted on. What else can it be but a large target for future missile practice ? Perhaps that pattern has been formulated to test a computerised pattern-recognition system in missiles ?

    Perhaps we should just get ENT onto it. He'll make reality conform to his theories.

    This one is bizzare.
    You have to go to the google maps link and zoom.
    Thousands of intersecting lines.
    How would they have constructed them?

    Erm, where did you get my photo you bastard?
    I might point out that there is no conspiracy theory here, just photos.
    Actual photos.

    Why would they do that?
    To make way for an interstellar bypass?

    the Aliens are coming, that's a given

    those spots are "landing codes" or invitation to talk to Chinese authority before they come to "reset" earth in 2012

    Blimey, you can also see a signpost with the letter A on it, does the A stand for ALIENS?

    That's highway A, the primary pan China highway.

    Um, these Gobi desert constructions are obviously recent and man made.

    Pan to the west of this and there is more weird shit. There's a power station, loads of blown up cars in a square and what look like runways, and in the general area of the runways what look like bomb craters. To the west of the runways is another grid thing. Very odd.

    The Nasca lines are also man made, just not recent.

    And if you look just behind the power station, you can see aliens sucking the brains out of a poor janitor. Freaky, huh?

    Harry, why make such a remark? No one here has postulated any kind of alien conspiracy theory or any such thing.
    These are actual google earth images.
    What do you make of them?

    Can't you see the holes in his overalls? Not the ones made by the brain-sucking aliens, obviously.

    Not open-cut mining. Close-up you can still see the bumps and dips of the topography. It really does look like it's just paint applied to the surface.
