    Volcanoes on other planets?

    How large are the volcanoes on other planets compared to the Earth and what is the biggest one discovered to date?

    Mercury, The data collected during the third flight of Mercury by NASA's Messenger probe, conducted in September 2009, we detected traces of the most recent date of volcanic activity on the planet. The data suggest that, far from being a small planet died as many astronomers believed the planet Mercury's volcanic activity tells us about his development and the possible development of planet Earth.

    It depends on the size of the other planet, for example a volcanoes in jupitar should be much larger then the volcanoes of earth

    The largest mountain of our solar system is in fact a Volcano.
    This volcano is on the planet mars and known as Olympus Mons.

    Olympus Mons is about 3 times the height of Mount Everest(tallest mountain peak on Earth).

    Yes, Venus, Saturn and the Sun have volcanic eruptions at varying levels. Universally, the rock cycle is going to happen on any body that is formed and has solidity of substance.

    Comparably, one could ask, We found mammals on Mars, will they grow fur? Will the give birth and nurse their young? If it classified as a true mammal, it will do all of these things.

    Essentially the entire universe is made up of the same minerals, salt, pepper, add carbon. :0) If there are other planets, they are very probably experiencing a cycle which includes volcanoes, earthquakes, and storms.

    European Space Agency, and NASA have frequent alerts, that show what is occurring within our solar system, planet-wide.

    Good Question.
