Yes, Mars does have an atmosphere. The Martian atmospherecontains about 95.3% carbon dioxide (CO2) and 2.7% nitrogen, with the remainder a mixture of other gases. However, it is a very thinatmosphere, roughly 100 times less dense than Earth&apos;s atmosphere.
Olympus Mons (Latin for Mount Olympus) is a large shield volcano on the planet Mars. By one measure, it has a height of nearly 22 km (14 mi).Olympus Mons stands almost three times as tall as Mount Everest&apos;s height above sea level. a mountain with a large, circular hole at the top through whichlava (= hot liquid rock) gases, steam, and dust are or have beenforced out: VOLCANO

The largest volcano in the solar
system is Olympus Mons. It is 624 km
(374 miles) in diameter; about the
same size as Arizona.
The altitude of Olympus Mons is three
times the altitude of the largest peak
on Earth, Mt. Everest.
Spaceship typically travels
about 300 million miles and
about 8 months to reach Mars
