is the world's longest human-made structure, stretching over 4,000 miles from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west. Despite common myths to the contrary, it cannot be seen from space.

which translates to "south of the seas," is the southernmost and smallest province of the People's Republic of China.
