Fact or Factoid #2

REMEMBER: A factoid is an item of unreliable information that is repeated so often that it becomes accepted as fact.  Read the following and decide if it’s a fact or factoid.

FACT or FACTOID: The Great Wall of China is the only man-made object visible from the moon. See Pic.

RESOLUTION: No single, man-made object on Earth can be seen with a naked eye from the Earth’s moon. In the best circumstances, the result of some human activity such as the changing of the Netherlands’ coast with the building of the dikes (See Pic) or the partial drying out of the Aral Sea might be visible. Some astronauts have reported seeing the Great Wall from low earth orbit.
