Why Is China Building These Gigantic Structures In the Middle of the Desert?

2011-11-14 (China Military News cited from gizmodo.com and by Jesus Diaz) — This is crazy. 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.

Perhaps it’s some kind of targeting or calibrating grid for Chinese spy satellites? Maybe it’s a QR code for aliens? Nobody really knows.

You can check it out yourself in Google Maps here.

Full sizeThe second structure seems to be some kind of giant targeting grid, also north of the Shule river.

If you zoom in, you can see vehicles destroyed. It’s west of what seems to be a fairly big electrical station or a radio station similar to HAARP, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program located near Gakona, Alaska, and funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska, and DARPA.


  1. There is a so much territory within China that the Chinese government has closed off to the public. When they are that far out from civilization then the government can do what it wants. Sorry! That’s right, the Chinese government can do whatever they want no matter if the population don’t want them to do it. Their government isn’t held to the same standards as the United States for answering to the people for their actions.

  2. Randall, perfect chance to take a cheap shot at China isn’t it? Same can be said of the U.S. The New Mexico desert is most radiated place on the planet thx to hundreds of secret nuclear tests since WWII. Now the place is occupied by CIA, FBI and the military each conducting their secret testings. The U.S is clever, because what they do, they won’t let idiots like you knowing anything in the first place, so there is no need to answer to you.

  3. SamS: Your a hypocrite, but I expect that from you. You continuously take cheaps shots at the US all the time.

  4. @smash, rofl let’s see, the U.S has conducted 1000+ atomic/nuke testings since WWII, moving between New Mexico and Nevada. Did the government ever ask your takes on that? or the people of those States? Your and your idiot friend Randall are the true hypocrite, taking this neutral article as the perfect opportunity to attack China. Your constant tracking of this website make it obvious ur the biggest hypocrite there is.

  5. @ SamS: Yea rofl’s right!! Whats constant tracing of this website got to do with me being a hypocrite, absolutely nothing!! On majority of your posts which talk SOLELY about China’s military and are neutral you are not objective but BIASED and bring the US into the equation/topic most times, hypocrite. To call me a hypocrite is laughable buddy.
    I presume you support Osama as well. When Osama was killed, the social networks within China lit up and were raising him to near superstar status; calling him “Uncle Osama”. After 9/11, there was nationwide jubilation in China for the success of the terriorist attack. Fkn distgusting. But, im sure you support him. Why do they revere him so much, because he is the enemy of the US. The anti-American sentiment among some Chinese is the direct result of continuous brain wash by the communist propaganda machine. The communist regime takes America as the single greatest threat to their totalitirian system. They never stop spreading hatred towards America. In saying that, most Chinese youth today have very favotable views regarding the USA, especially its political decomatic system.
    Keep your posts coming i enjoy reading them!.

  6. Its just common sense. americans went to war with Iraq, UN sanctioned the country for ten years, invaded Afghanistan and then Iraq. Almost every country in the Middle East is under some sort of american occupation save for Iran and Syria. You dont need common sense Chinese education to determine that americans are trash.

  7. @Smash

    Every time I argue I bring out hard facts and you cleverly evade them because you got nothing. Now you want to change topic? Your presuming, assuming, guessing, blatant ignorance are the prime example of a true hypocrite. Your constant tracking of this website in order to take shot at China at every opportunity shows you are a hypocrite. You are neutral my ass. I’m not the one who turned this article showing simple satellite image into another China bashing gang fest by trash like you and your buddy. And your personal attack on me exemplify the hypocrisy coming from your tongue.

    Keep spinning the topic, let’s see the full display anger and hatred inside you.

  8. Btw smash, good job contradicting yourself, idiot. You say the youth have favorable views regarding USA, yet they support Osama? Like I said, let’s see you keep spewing out your crap and have yourself a clown on full display.

  9. SamS: haha hilarious posts. No anger inside me my friend but I can sense and smell YOUR anger and frustration.
    Again hilarious, I dont TRACK this site or YOU i read the informative articles/blogs and respond accordingly.
    No contradiction there buddy. I NEVER said I was neutral, I REFERRED that the articles that were neutral talking solely about Chinese military capabilities with which you come out and bash the US and supporters at every opportunity. You turn most neutral articles into US bashing with constant reference to the US. Read my posts more carefully idiot!!. 9/11 was 10 years ago incase you forgot, i said MOST youth have favourable attitudes towards its political decomatic system NOT ALL. Again try reading my posts first before showing your obvious bias and frustration with someone with an opposing view. I never said ALL Chinese supported Osama you braindead dip shit. Once again read my posts more carefully or go back to school. So as you say DONT presume, assume, guess!!
    With a name like SamS you sound like a left wing european or westerner living in a democratic society with freedon of speech and granted the opportunity to vote for your appeasing party. I agree with Randall that “the Chinese government isn’t held to the same standards as the United States for answering to the people for their actions” if you question or protest (oopps they cant protest or question) your thrown in some CCP re-education camp or gulag.
    You might be happy to bend over and take it up the ass from China but most freedon loving countries will resist. As your friend Tienfei keeps saying the CCP are trash. Also your 1 fact is not worth responding to or wasting my time as its been repeated ad nauseum.
    Haha me the clown you are hilarious circus clown fool my friend. But its ok dont beat yourself up!!

    Anyway thats enough for me i have to get back to work.

  10. Smash hahah “braindead dip shit”, angry kid is angry. I got the white trash angry over a Chinese satellite image. It shows the degree of willingness, these tipped off and insecure Western fools like Smash to jump the bandwagon and constant looking out for the presumed “enemies” to release their inner frustration on problems at home. Talk big all you want. It’s just all the yada yada yada empty over-generalization, the biased Western media used to bash China all day long. Nothing original comes from you.

    Sure, you said majority youth in China have favorable attitude toward America, so why should it even matter some extremists showed sympathy toward Osama since it’s only a minority? Every country has a minority of extremists with radical ideas and believes. And you would cite them and use them as logical source to argue your point? Only hypocrites do and that’s you.

    Again, I stand corrected “With a name like SamS you sound like a left wing european or westerner living……………”. Just keep on guessing, assuming, hypocrite. Your level of hypocrisy just keeps getting better. You are welcome.

  11. Most polls indicate non-favorable views of americans. And thats how it should be.

  12. SamS: talk big & insecure – haha good try but fail my friend, biaed western media like the China Peoples daily lol. I live a good like at home rofl.
    Dont beat yourseld up so much!! As mentioned, keep your comments coming i enjoy reading them.

  13. SamS,
    To reply to your cheap shot at me for my comments deal with this article. The US stopped nuclear testing in 1992. China stopped in 1996. The total count of US blast test above ground and below ground is 1054. But, what you didn’t know was that the US had to notify the public of their actions in these areas. If the public has access to these areas the government had to give written notice to the public in public forums.
    When the US Government noticed that there was more of a threat to the public the government started to buy up properties of private citizens and unowned properties.

  14. If these are China’s new test sites then fine but, at least let someone know before they walk into the wrong area.

  15. @ smash, Randal. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, U.S supports Taiwan, Vietnam, Phillipine, Japan, all are enemies of China. Why, because after the clapse of USSR. China is now U.S’s number one enemy. Like wise, U.S is China’s number one enemy, and of course China is goint to support anyone who opposes the U.S. Nothing wrong with that or what the U.S is doing. It’s every nation for itself. China and U.S are both looking out for themselves and try to out maneuver their enemy. What you need to understand is there is no right vs.wrong, good vs.evil on this planet. U.S is not the saint, and China is not the demon or vice versa. They are both the same: nations made of human beings fighting for their own interest. So if you want a fight, bring it!

  16. angrychinaman: agreed, cant believe we agree on something!
    Wonder why China has so many enemies, would it be because they are a arrogant communist dictatorship which grants no freedon of speech or ability to critise the CCP?
    Yes i know its all the US fault, western media etc etc etc and not China’s, haha

  17. China has no real enemies besides the us. China is not fighting a war with any of its neighbors or any country in the world. us is engaged in multiple wars with numerous small countries all over the globe.

  18. The US enemies are all despotic states which are Chinese allies. China has plenty of enemies, US, India, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, majority South East Asian countries , Russia, Nato etc with which China has territorial disputes with many listed.
    They will have many more enemies if they dont change their confrontational attitude with regards to claims within the South China Sea.

  19. us’s enemies are all non-white. Every country it has ever bombed had been a Latin American, African, Asian, or Middle Eastern countries save for Yugoslavia. And that exception was made because it was aligned with Communists prior to the Soviet collapse.

    China really isnt at war with any country. Only with the us is there is massive antipathy. China and Russia are allies. They are members of the SCO and have debated whether to include Iran under the organization.

    I dont think Chinese claims over the South China Sea is whats causing the current tremors. Even the us admits that it is trying to instigate hostilities in the region to see just what it takes to get China to respond.

  20. America is the super tyrants not a democracy, the evidence Julian Assange Wikileak was arrested and on the block all access to finance as well as being watched wherever he was even in prison as if Julian Assange’s most dangerous criminals in this world than the most dangerous criminals in human history though Julian Assange did not have any errors in the American and not American citizens but citizens of Australia, the demonstration is one feature of a democratic country, it was a demonstration in New York Wall Street in American assault troops in the key itself and the news conference at the meeting should not be preached, and the state different willingness to America in the assault and dropped on the grounds kinds of things, examples of Iraq with weapons of mass destruction, and until now was never met, Libya for refusing to sign the africom, Columbian because the panama canal who oppose America’s Columbian 1903 in assault and the colonized and founded the American puppet government in the territory panama panama and then again when Noriega American puppet who turned against the Americans in the assault on 20 des 1989 – january 1990 victims killed 4000 of the human soul, pressing European countries to not lift embargo high tehnologie to china, a democracy is a country that never hit the population and other countries to follow the will of a small group of people or a person, a super tyrant is always pressing other governments to obey the will of the super-tyrant (America) and always have a double standard for his own benefit

  21. May be China has enemies, but the whole world is the U.S’s enemy. How many countries have the U.S invaded and occupied, how many people were murdered by its army? Women, children, elderly. In comparison,how many country had china occupied? zero! most of your so called allies are no better. Vietnam invaded Laos, Cambodia, after kicked the living shit out of the “mighty” U.S army, and now it’s the U.S’s ally? what a joke. Taiwan the nationalist government turned China into a chaotic mess, a piece of meat been torned apart by invaders. The communist may not be the perfect government, but look at china now, world second larges economy in merely 30+ years. Do I really need to start on Japan? And Russia? you think Russia is China’s enemy and U.S’s ally after it got fucked over by the U.S? Are you retarded? The only issue that Russia has with China is China copying its weapons. Don’t let propaganda and blind patriotism cloud your judgement. Yes, China has a shit load of problems, so does the U.S. You just can’t handle the fact that a “evil communist” is outdoing the “Just Democracy”. The world is not black and white. open your eyes and minds a little, you’ll live longer.
