"It seems to be a question that comes up regularly: Have we found evidence of alien life forms? Conspiracy theorists are going nuts with some strange images from China's Gobi Desert found on Google Maps.
The first of these images was taken of some huge structures in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, just north of the Shule River, Gizmodo said. This image is a rectangular grid that looks a bit like the entangling city streets without buildings. It's about a mile long and 3,000 feet wide. Fox said some have claimed this formation is a replica of the streets of Washington, D.C.
Another image was also taken north of the Shule River, Gizmodo said. This one is also a grid structure comprised of a series of squares that is littered with debris from exploded vehicles. Gizmodo noted that the image was taken west of a large electrical or radio station.
The Telegraph pointed out that all of the images were taking less than 100 miles from Jiuquan, which is where China's space program is headquartered. Could the images have some relation to alien life? Were they caused by UFOs? Is this China's version of Area 51?
The rest of the images are even more inexplicable. There's another grid made up of either squares or holes that iss more than 18 miles long. Another looks like a target with three jets in the middle and debris radiating out from the center. Gizmodo also discovered various unidentified buildings. One looks like an airport and another is a giant complex about 10 miles by five miles.
No one seems to have a concrete explanation of what these images are. It's possible Google Maps was hacked and a clever prankster inserted overlays that people have interpreted in rather wild ways.
What do you think? Give the images a look and share your thoughts in the comments." Thanks to Coasttocoast AM with G Noory + Nick Begich: http://www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2011/11/15
