Mars’ Largest Volcano – Olympus Mons

This is Mars. Three billion years ago it had active volcanoes. One still remains, the largest volcano in the solar system. The cliffs leading to it are over nine kilometers high. Mt. Everest would sit comfortably in their shadow and those are just the foothills. This is the awe-inspiring Olympus Mons. It covers an area the size of Arizona. Its crater alone is 85 kilometers wide. Yet a structure this size would require millions of years to form, time that volcanoes on Earth never get. On Earth, the crust is always moving. Deep below a single hot spot pushes magma […]
