The Great Wall from Space

( mercredi 12 mai 2004)
Proba, the polyvalent satellite launched in 2001 by the European Space Agency (ESA), was able to capture images of the Great Wall from space taken at an altitude of 600 km.
China has cherished for decades the idea that the Wall was just about the only manmade object visible to astronauts from space.
According to American astronaut Eugene Cernan, speaking during a visit to Singapore: "In Earth's orbit at a height of 160 to 320 kilometres, the Great Wall of China is indeed visible to the naked eye."

La Muralla China

The Great Wall of China (simplified Chinese: 长城; traditional Chinese: 長城; pinyin: Chángchéng; literally "Long City/fortress") or (simplified Chinese: 万里长城; traditional Chinese: 萬里長城; pinyin: Wànlǐ Chángchéng; literally "The long wall of 10,000 Li (里)" is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 6th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from Xiongnu attacks during the rule of successive dynasties. Several walls, referred to as the Great Wall of China, were built since the 5th century BC.

The most famous is the wall built between 220–200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang; little of it remains; it was much farther north than the current wall, which was built during the Ming Dynasty.

The Great Wall stretches over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles) from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia, but stretches to over 6,700 km (4,160 miles) in total.

At its peak, the Ming Wall was guarded by more than one million men. It has been estimated that somewhere in the range of 2 to 3 million Chinese died as part of the centuries-long project of building the wall.

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall is one of the seven construction wonders in the world.

Qin Shi Huangdi built the Great Wall of China over 2,000 years ago, by Qin Shi Huangdi, the first emperor of China during the Qin Dynasty (221 B.C-206B.C.)

In Chinese the Wall is called “Wan-Li Qang-Qeng” which means 10,000 Li- Long Wall (10,000 Li-about 5,000 Km.).

The construction of the Great Wall begin between the 7th. and 8th. centuries Before Christ.

The warring states built big strong defensive walls to keep away enemies from coming from the North.

La Torre Eiffel

The magnificent structure known as the Eiffel Tower, shaped by supports of iron, was built in France, for the 1889 Paris Exposition. Designers Maurice Keochlin and Emile Nouguier assisted the french structural engineer Alexander Gustave Eiffel.

This massive 984-foot structure, built to celebrate the world's accomplishments in science and engineering, consists of two immense parts; a base composed of a platform resting on four separate supports and, above this a slender tower rising above a second platform to combine into a towering peak.

On March 31, 1889, a small group of dignitaries climbed the 1,792 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower to hoist a huge French flag at the top. It was once said that the French flag flew on the highest flagpole in the world.

The tower was an enormous hit at the Paris Expo, attracting almost two million visitors in five months alone. During the exposition, visitors had to paid money to ascend up the tower.

First Platform - 2 franc
Second Platform - 3 francs
Top - 5 francs
By the end of the year 1889, seventy-five percent of the total cost to build the tower had been recovered.

For over forty years, Eiffel's creation remained the tallest in the world. The tower was also a European leader in aerodynamics on account of its precisely calculated curves and design. Withstanding weather and competition of the world, the Eiffel Tower still remains one of the most exquisite structures of the world.

The planners wanted a special monument that would always be remembered for the celebration of French freedom. Many designs, from all over France were submitted.
Alexandre Gustave Eiffel's design was chosen.
He proposed to build the tallest structure in the world.

On all four sides of the Eiffel tower there are the names of all 72 scientists who contributed in the building. - http:/
