So, thinking of these Seven beautiful peaks made me remember the tallest mountain in our solar system, Olympus Mons.
I amended this really neat graphic, showing how Mars’ tallest peak fits into the scenario. Long story short, it makes Everest look like a ski hill.

You should have included Mauna Kea. Planetary comparisons of topography should ignore the earth’s oceans.
Reblogged this on Moss & Fog and commented:
This was posted a year back or so, but I still like thinking about mountain peaks on other planets, especially Olympus Mons at 88,000 feet!
