Huge canyon discovered under Greenland Ice

One of the biggest canyons in the world has been found beneath the ice sheet that smothers most of Greenland.

The canyon - which is 800km long and up to 800m deep - was carved out by a great river more than four million years ago, before the ice arrived.

It was discovered by accident as scientists researching climate change mapped Greenland’s bedrock by radar.

The British Antarctic Survey said it was remarkable to find so huge a geographical feature previously unseen.

Would be cool if there was an under-ice river that flowed from it: one that would allow a person to walk a ways into it... :)

Eitherway cool find!

how long will it take before some one claims that it's shown on some old map?  if only we reverse the map & then rotate it 56.7 degrees in some direction

I keep reading the title as "huge crayon discovered..."

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
