WUT?

Also, the height of Earth's mountains is generally measured from the sea level, not from the base of the mountain (which would be roughly 5km). The height of mountains (and depth of craters) on the Moon is measured above/below the average diameter of the Moon, which is roughly 1,737,400 metres from the centre of the Moon. So Mt. Everest, which is almost 8.9 km tall, is still more than 3 km taller than the highest mountain on the Moon - Mons Huygens - 5.5 km.

Tl;dr - some of the se facts are wrong, please check more thoroughly next time.
