A Grand Canyon On Mars

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

In this stunning photo, we see Mars in awesome definition, with its GRAND canyon, Valles Marineris, in full view.  This canyon is a bit bigger than ours by several hundred kilometers.  The Grand Canyon on Earth is about a kilometer deep at its deepest, while the big one on Mars is 8 km. at its deepest.  But no matter how you compare the two, it is still a wonderful picture.  Be sure to click on the photo to see the whole planet.
