Caption

Olympus Mons. Computer model looking down on the Olympus Mons shield volcano on Mars. North is at top. The colours indicate elevation from white (highest) through brown, red, orange, yellow, green and blue (lowest). Olympus Mons peaks 24 kilometres above the plain, and steep cliff edges rise a sheer 10 kilometres of this distance. Shield volcanoes are flat, and Olympus Mons is a massive 600 kilometres across and is the largest mountain in the solar system. The topography of this model was drawn with Terragen software, using data from the laser altimeter on the Mars Global Surveyor probe.
