I wonder what the leading Chinese expert was an expert in.A photograph taken from space appears to confirm that China's Great Wall can be seen with the naked eye after all.
In the picture, which is plastered over the front page, the wall is highlighted in orange to distinguish it from a nearby road and railway.
The picture sent back by Mr Chiao, who is currently aboard the International Space Station, was authenticated by a leading Chinese expert.
This is just as well, because the astronaut, being interviewed by satellite and e-mail, said he himself was not actually sure he had really captured the wall.
He is going to try to snap it again when he next passes over China but he will have to be quick because he is orbiting at a speed of 8km (five miles) a second.
China's pride may be a bit blunted, because lots of other things such as Egypt's pyramids and even various airports can be seen, too.
But it can take some comfort in the fact that this apparent breakthrough was at least made by an astronaut of Chinese descent.
