OT: Mars' Valles Marineris canyon

{Great pics if you’re into Mars photos.}

Mars’ Valles Marineris canyon, which is 20 TIMES WIDER and five times deeper than the Grand Canyon, is revealed in stunning photographs captured by European Space Agency

Valles Marineris, which is 2,485 miles long and 4 miles deep, has been revealed in gorgeous detail in images captured by European Space Agency’s Mars Express

The huge Red Planet canyon would span from the northern tip of Norway to the southern tip of Sicily

One can see two trenches, known as lus chasma and Tithonium Chasma, that are each over 500 miles long

The Alps’ Mont Blanc - rising over 15,000 feet above sea level - would fit easily inside Tithonium Chasma
