Ok that is really messed up I admit. I have no clue what the strange grid patterns are, I am baffled.
However, the one photograph of the circular area with various objects and several old jets in the middle, is most likely a type of infantry training location, as the objects would probably serve as cover etc. It does resemble many training facilities I have seen.
But all of those grid patterns? No clue, I have never seen anything like that before.edit on 13-11-2011 by muzzleflash because: (no reason given)

The white lines could have been put there so a satellite in orbit can beam energy there to increase oil field output.

Sorry, but that's just embarrassingly stupid.

I'm assuming China is doing the same thing, along with Russia. Why exactly outside of the "just in case" scenario. I'm not overly sure.
Came across this and thought it was interesting, anyone here have any thoughts, I know some people will like it as there is mention of DARPA and HAARP
Here is a weird airport-like structure. Except it's bright cyan. Seems full of water or made of a weird material. And look at the other airport-like structure next to it. Perhaps a decoy?
This is a huge complex, ten by five miles at least. Are these huge precipitation pools of some kind? If you zoom in Google Maps (see the image below this one), you could see two cooling towers like those used in nuclear plants, as well as several water treatment plants.
The Chinese have been building huge structures in the desert for a long time. Back in 2006, they built this 1:20 scale model of disputed border region between China and India. That's a terrain model 0.7 kilometer wide by almost 1 kilometer tall. Uncanny. Why would they build such a model of a terrain? To play a 1:20 scale war with 1:20 scale tanks? Mind boggling.
The Chinese have been building cities out in the middle of the desert for a awhile. Most if not all are mostly empty-essentially ghost towns...see story here.
These are likely new cities being built.

It's not often that we can call "Solved" on a genuine mystery here, but in this case it looks like the case is closed on the identity of the strange buildings located in the middle of the desert in a remote area of China. China says they are merely factories and warehouses. In the middle of the desert, where clearly there is a huge need for random huge buildings? But okay, China, we'll take your word for it.
