Just to get technical, the great wall seen from space thing is a myth. It takes super clear conditions to maybe make out a section of the wall with the naked eye from low Earth orbit (not space by the way). It's a bit easier to spot in a good photograph. Once you're on the moon though, you definitely cannot see it let alone any other man-made structures apart from city lights at night.
