Googling our neighbour...

...the 4th rock from the sun. Brian's science teacher told him about Google Mars, pretty neighbour we have huh?

We found Olympus Mons, largest mountain in the solar system, with a height of 24km (3 times that of Everest) and a base of 500km in diameter!

Ha, check this out...The Olympus Mountaineering Award, established in 1994, for the first mountaineering team to successfully climb to the top of Olympus Mons. Any takers?

Off to bake cupcakes now.
