Mysterious Symbols In China Desert Are Spy Satellite Targets, Expert Says
Natalie Wolchover


Newfound Google Maps images have revealed an array of mysterious
structures and patterns etched into the surface of China's Gobi
Desert. The media =97 from mainstream to fringe =97 has wildly
speculated that they might be Chinese weapons-testing sites,
satellite calibration targets, street maps of Washington, D.C.,
and New York City, or even messages to (or from) aliens.

It turns out that they are almost definitely used to calibrate
China's spy satellites.

So says Jonathon Hill, a research technician and mission planner
at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University,
which operates many of the cameras used during NASA's Mars
missions. Hill works with images of the Martian surface taken by
rovers and satellites, as well as data from Earth-orbiting NASA
instruments.
