There are lots of explanations for the gigantic structures built in China's desert. But the most mysterious thing is invisible: according to a former CIA analyst, there's someone who has ordered tonnes of satellite photos of this area since 2004.
This is crazy. New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?
You know how you feel slightly nervous when you're flagged for a random customs screening? Even when you haven't done anything wrong? Imagine carrying stolen tech, 30 grand cash, and documents from the Chinese government? Listen, guys, I can explain!

It goes without saying Western soldiers haven't seen a lot of jungle and woodland shooting these days. The arid climes of the Middle East—and their urban centers—have been warfare hotspots. So how about some crazy new urban camouflage?
Well, this is possibly the most heartbreaking scene you'll see today. This amazing father and deployed military man made some pre-recorded bedtime stories for his 2-year-old daughter while he was away. And from the look of it, she can't tell.
Human ingenuity just built this crazy combat bot. A semi-autonomous robot that can run for 18 hours and survive deadly explosions? Totally cool, but after the machines take over... how are we going to stop it?
What happens when the extremely expensive helmet you cooked up for the extremely expensive F-35 doesn't, uh, work? You strap together a new one in a hurry. This wicked looking replacement was gutted and filled with crazy killer optics.
