Mars is named after the Roman God of war. Mars is the seventh largest planet, although it is much smaller than Earth. The largest volcano we know of isn't on Earth - it's on Mars. Olympus Mons is the tallest volcano in our solar system and is three times taller than Mt. Everest. There's also a huge canyon called Vallis Marineris.
