Great Fall of China only man-made object visible from space


China Stock Market crash

The Great Fall of China is the only man-made object visible from space, astronauts aboard the ISS have confirmed today.

For years it has been speculated that the Great Wall was the only human endeavor visible to the naked eye from orbit, but scientists have confirmed the honour actually belongs to a fucking great crater where the Shanghai stock market recently stood.

NASA have promised to have the Mars Rover’s cameras turned towards the Earth to see if it can be seen from there too.

The economic crash, which some speculate is the largest man-made object in history, was caused by government policy encouraging uninformed amateurs to buy with borrowed money on the promise that prices would keep going up.

Experts have insisted this is completely different to the crash in Britain in 2008 in which government policy encouraged uninformed amateurs to buy with borrowed money on the promise that prices would keep going up.

Astronauts have often spoken of the serene, placid beauty of the earth as it spins gently beneath them, but in recent days have been more moved to comment on the whopping hole where the Chinese economy used to be.

“My God”, said one. “It’s full of debt!”

Not be be outdone, the Oil-rich Gulf States have pledged to build one even bigger, with the Saudi Economic Minister saying that “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet”.

It is not the first time that an economic crash has been visible from space, as a gigantic crater was briefly visible under Gordon Brown’s house a few years ago until his supporters came round one night and covered it up with a big piece of astroturf.
