The Wall is visible from low Earth orbit (an altitude of as little as 100 miles). NASA said that it is barely visible, and only under nearly perfect conditions; it is no more conspicuous than many other man-made objects. Some of them said it is impossible to see the wall with the naked eye, even from low orbit.
