    New Largest Volcano on Earth Discovered

    Move over, Mauna Loa.

    A group of scientists say they've found a volcano bigger than you.

    Way bigger.

    An underwater volcano dubbed Tamu Massif was found some 1,000 miles east of Japan, says William Sager, a professor at the University of Houston, who led a team of scientists in the discovery.

    The volcano is about the size of the state of New Mexico and is among the largest in the solar system, Sager says.

    Tamu Massif covers an area of about 120,000 square miles. In comparison, the largest active volcano on land, Hawaii's Mauna Loa, is about 2,000 square miles, Sager says.

    Too bad it cannot be harnessed for its energy.
