In length geological formation up to 700 km, and a depth of 9 km. Such scales can only be compared with the object on Miranda a depth of 5 km.
With the help of New Horizons, NASA researchers have done the canyon for a distance of 466 km from Charon. 14 Jul camera at the closest distance approached the satellite of Pluto, making it possible to obtain high-quality images of the canyon.
