38°N 136°E to 24°N 139°E; about 840 km, from the southern Utopia Planitia, to the northwest flank of the massive extinct volcano Elysium Mons, where it is cut by the Granicus Valles and Elysium Fossae.
Though not the most famous of Mars’ montes, Elysium is almost 14 km high and 240 km wide, dwarfing any terrestrial mountain or volcano. Roughly circular, the entire volcanic uplift covers more than 45,000 square km, almost exactly the same area as Estonia.

Did you get through the whole series? Because they totally do talk about Arabic astronomers and scientists
