Astronomy Special Mars Homework name, date, hour: 20 points launch www.google.com/mars search and locate “Olympus Mons”, the largest volcano in the solar system 1. Knowing that more craters indicates “older” land, in comparison to Olympus Mons, where would you predict there is older Martian terrain, and where is newer terrain, where lava has come up and created new land or ancient water has erased craters? 2. Valles Marineris is the huge canyon to the southeast (by this map) of Olympus Mons. Looking at elevations, if this was formed by water, where did this water come from? Explain your reasoning. 3. Besides Olympus Mons, and the volcanoes just to the “east and southeast” of it, find another volcano and tell me specifically where it is. 4. Could Valles Marineris have been formed by something besides water? By what? Explain your reasoning.
