[Ans] Where would you find Olympus Mons — the largest volcano in the solar system?

Olympus Mons is the largest volcano in the solar system, and is located on the planet Mars. The volcano has an astonishing height of 16 miles, and is about three times taller than Earth’s highest mountain, Mount Everest. Olympus Mons is about 20 times wider than it is high. If you set Olympus Mons on top of the United States, it would cover the entire state of Arizona. And if you plopped it over Europe, it would cover France. The extraordinary size of Olympus Mons is likely because Mars lacks mobile tectonic plates. Unlike on Earth, the crust of Mars remains fixed over a stationary hotspot, and a volcano can continue to discharge lava until it reaches an enormous height.
