Olympus Mons #Ahsphysics #ahschemistry

Hey science students!

Here is a short tidbit of information for you this morning! The tallest mountain/volcano is located on the least likely planet…the small red planet of mars! Olympus Mons is 16 miles high and roughly 350 miles across. It is approximately the size of the state of Arizona. However, it is NOT a steep volcano. You could most likely walk up the side of it. It does however dwarf any volcano here on earth being 3 times larger than Mt. Everest. Have a great day!
