What Are These Mysterious Lines In China's Desert?
Analysis by Benjamin Radford

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.
