Arizona’s Grand Canyon may be surprising, but compared to the mighty Walars Merinaris Canyon on Mars, it is “scratched.”

If the valley were located in the United States, it would travel approximately 2,500 miles from New York to San Francisco via the Mars equator. NASA. The bottom of the valley runs 7 miles into the surrounding plains. It is as deep as some of the deepest parts of the earth’s ocean.

It is the largest valley in the solar system, and new images of the Mars Renaissance Orbiter reveal details of its enormous size.

The photos were taken using HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment), a very powerful camera sent to another planet. This probe into Mars is one of six instruments in orbit University of Arizona he said.

Despite the breathtaking images of Wallace Merinaris, scientists are still somewhat unsure how the Carquan Canyon complex was created, according to LiveSense.

“Unlike Earth’s Great Canyon, the Wales Marineris has not been disturbed by water for billions of years; the red planet is so hot and dry that it sometimes carried a river so big that it cut through the bar.” The science of living he said.

Much of the valley opened millions of years ago. European Space Agency It is said that the first close group of volcanoes known as the Darsi area first came out of the Martian soil.

The space agency said: “During the first billion years of the planet, Taris’ eruption was swept away by magma, which expanded the surrounding crust and eventually fell into the giant tank of Wallace Marineris.”

Olympus Mons is the largest volcanic eruption in the solar system. The Science Times Reported.

According to LiveSense, analyzing such high-resolution photos can help solve the story of the deepest appearance of the solar system’s largest valley.
