"From Olympus he came forthwith, hurling his lightning: the bold flew thick and fast from his strong hand together with thunder and lightning, whirling an awesome flame." Theogony around 700 B.C

Is this story an allegory for a Battle on Mars between the Titan at Olympus Mons?

Did the Mars Rover (Spirit) get a picture of one of the Titans?

Is probably largest volcano in the solar system. The size of the great state of Arizona. It is a exogeological wonder. It is 100 times the size of Mauna Loa, Hawaii.
   This dirt hill as they say in Texas was the first indication that the plates on Mars no longer move.

Why so big? The hotspots that make volcanoes don't move on Mars.  On earth where hotspots move they create chains of volcanoes.  Instead on Mars the Volcano just keep growing . The slightly lower gravity on Mars doesn't hurt either.
