    The Martian surface is home to both the largest known volcano, Olympus Mons, and largest known canyon, Valles Marineris, in the Solar System. With a height of 25 km and a base diameter of 600 km, Olympus Mons is three times the height of Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain on the Earth. Valles Marineris is 4,000 km long, 200 km wide, and almost 7 km deep. To put the shear magnitude of its size into perspective, Valles Marineris would stretch from the East to West coast of the United States.

    Your Fact of the day for July 14th...

    The first graphic image on a license plate was a potato, created for Idaho in 1928.

    And your Fact of the day for today, July 15th...

    The Dodge brothers originally started as a bicycle manufacturing company in 1897. When that closed in 1900, they started to manufacture stove parts at their machine shop before eventually moving to automobiles. (Just imagine a Dodge Challenger stove instead of a car...I think they made he right decision)
