Can all seven wonders be seen from outer space?

No, most of the original seven wonders don't exist anymore.

The only one of the original seven that still exists today are the Pyramids of Egypt. As to what man made construction can be seen from space, I can tell you that it's The Great Wall of China. And the brightest spot on earth as seen from space? Las Vegas. Actually that's a myth. The Great Wall of China is not visible from space (without a telescope/binoculars). If you've seen a photo of it from the ground, it should be obvious that it's far too thin to be visible from space. I've heard that since it was built, sand has piled up on one side of the wall, and this is visible from space. I've just looked on Google Maps. People have tagged 10 places where they say the Great Wall of China is, but I can't find anything that looks like the wall (or the sand on one side of the wall). It's been said that truly, the only man construction seen from space is the green houses concentration near Almeria, south eastern Spain, where they heavily grow vegetables in an intensive manner. You can check it out in google earth, and is nearly distinctable at a 800-1000 miles altitude. To locate, I suggest start at 150 miles heigth. And retract from there.

The Great Wall is undistictable at 10 miles height.

What are the old seven wonders of the world?

Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

The historian Herodotus (484 BC-ca. 425 BC), and the scholar Callimachus of Cyrene (ca 305-240 BC) at the Museum of Alexandria, made early lists of "Seven wonders" but their writings did not survive, except as references. They included the Great Pyramid of Giza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes and Lighthouse of Alexandria.

The list that we know today was compiled in the Middle Ages-by which time many of the sites mentioned above were no longer in existence.

Seven wonders of the middle ages

* Stonehenge

* Colosseum

* Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa

* Great Wall of China

* Porcelain Tower of Nanjing

* Hagia Sophia

* Leaning Tower of Pisa

What are the seven man-made wonders of the world?

== == The Colosseum of Rome The Catacombs of Alexandria The Great Wall of China Hagia Sophia of Constantinople Stonehenge The Leaning Tower of Pisa The Porcelain Pagoda of Nanjing The Great Pyramids (Egypt) Hagia Sophia (Turkey) Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy) Washington Monument (U.S.) Eiffel Tower (France) Taj Mahal (India) Empire State Building (U.S.) The Pyramids of Giza The Hanging Gardens of Babylon The temple of Artemis at Ephesus The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus The Pharos (lighthouse) of Alexandria The statue of Zeus at Olympia, Greece Colossus of Rhodes (statue of the sun god Helios) The Grand Canyon (U.S.) Iguazu Falls (Argentina) Yosemite Valley's Giant Sequoias (U.S.) Mount Everest (Tibet/Nepal) The Harbor of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) The Nile River (Egypt) The Aaurora Borealis (the northern lights) Niagara Falls (U.S./Canada) Rainbow Natural Bridge (U.S.) The Petrified Forest (U.S.) among others. Listing the seven wonders of the world began during the time of the Greeks. The first lists were for travelers of that time, listing man-made objects of particular architectural or sculptural note. Today there are many such lists, including the Seven Modern Wonders, the Seven Wonders of the Medieval World, the Seven Natural Wonders, the Seven Wonders of Medicine, etc. There are many other such lists; none are definitive, of course. The United Nations' World Heritage Convention (part of UNESCO) has compiled an inventory of the world's wonders that it plans to preserve and protect. To qualify, a site must be judged to have outstanding universal value, either natural, like Canada's Wood Buffalo National Park and Australia's Great Barrier Reef, or cultural, like Haiti's Citadel and Sans Souci and France's Chartres Cathedral. Among the hundreds of sites listed by the World Heritage Convention are the ancient city of Cuzco in Peru, Virunga National Park in Zaire, the U.S.'s Statue of Liberty, Altamira Cave in Spain, and Sri Lanka's sacred city of Anuradhapura. You can read more about some of the World Heritage Sites in the Society's book Our World's Heritage, published in 1987.

Poverty

What is pro poor tourism?

Pro-Poor Tourism (PPT) is tourism that results in increased net benefits for poor people. PPT is not a specific product or niche sector but an approach to tourism development and management. It enhances the linkages between tourism businesses and poor people, so that tourism's contribution to poverty reduction is increased and poor people are able to participate more effectively in product development. Links with many different types of 'the poor' need to be considered: staff, neighbouring communities, land-holders, producers of food, fuel and other suppliers, operators of micro tourism businesses, craft-makers, other users of tourism infrastructure (roads) and resources (water) etc. There are many types of pro poor tourism strategies, ranging from increasing local employment to building mechanisms for consultation. Any type of company can be involved in pro-poor tourism - a small lodge, an urban hotel, a tour operator, an infrastructure developer. The critical factor is not the type of company or the type of tourism, but that an increase in the net benefits that go to poor people can be demonstrated.
