To further clarify why Chinese Astronaut Yang Liwei said what he did:
"There was a popular saying in China that the Great Wall was the only manmade architecture that could be sighted by naked eyes in space."
"...some American astronauts who had entered space had denied this allegation when they visited China and gave lectures to the public."
In short, yeah, China needs to revamp their education books, in that, the Great Wall cannot be seen with the naked eye, other than from low orbit.
