Mt Everest

The Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD) has some stunning images. One of them is this stunning panoramic view of the top of Mount Everest. Coming up tomorrow is a picture of the Martian Everest – a volcano called Olympus Mons. Wikipedia says that it is the tallest known mountain in the solar system (3 times the size of Everest) and if one were to stand on the highest point of its summit, the slope of the volcano would extend all the way to the horizon. If you want to track the APOD pictures, here is a screen scraped RSS feed.
