Caption

Valles Marineris, Mars, illustration. The Valles Marineris is a canyon system that is 4000 kilometres long, up to 200 km wide and up to 7 km deep. It is found at the southeastern edge of the Tharsis Bulge, the canyons were originally created by faulting during the formation of Tharsis. Water erosion seems to be involved. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet. It is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of impact craters, valleys, deserts and polar ice caps. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system and valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons in the Solar system.
