|The Tallest Mountain|
Olympus Mons dwarfs all other mountains in the Solar System. This monster volcano on Mars soars over three times the height of Mt. Everest and covers about the same area as the state of Arizona. A climber standing at the base of Olympus Mons would be unable to see the summit. And when compared to the size of Mars — the small red planet has less than 15% the volume of Earth — Olympus Mons is HUGE! How can the tallest mountain in the Solar System reside on such a small planet?
