Charon has a troubled past. Not easy being Pluto’s moon, apparently.

Never-seen-before images of Pluto’s moon Charon have revealed a huge valley that’s four times as long as the Grand Canyon and twice as deep. Captured by the New Horizons spacecraft, the startling images show a belt of canyons just north of the moon’s equator, stretching more than 1,000 miles. NASA scientists weren’t expecting to find such a varied landscape, but the new images of Charon have revealed a surprisingly “complex and violent history.”

It looks like the entire crust of Charon has been split open.
