  • Elon Musk proposed an ambitious idea to terraform Mars.
  • He plans to bombard the planet’s poles with a large number of nuclear weapons.
  • He will require more than 10,000 nuclear warheads.
  • Mars most preferable planet for future colonization.
  • The explosions will release trapped carbon dioxide that makes up the Martian “ice” caps.
  • The released gas will thicken the planet’s atmosphere.
  • It will trigger the greenhouse gas effect and eventually raise the Martian temperatures.

According to an article published in TASS, Musk proposed an ambitious idea to terraform Mars by bombarding the planet’s poles with a large number of nuclear weapons.

Elon Musk plans to nuke Mars

Musk’s plan to bombard the Martian polar caps to terraform the planet through the release of carbon dioxide will require launching more than 10,000 nuclear warheads, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos Executive Director for Science and Long-Term Programs Alexander Bloshenko said in an interview with TASS.

If briefly analyzed, certain plans put forward by SpaceX simply cannot be implemented taking into account the short-term technological developments. For example, for a thermonuclear explosion on Mars’ pole, one of the plans of SpaceX, to have tangible results, more than 10,000 launches of missiles that can carry the largest payloads and are being developed now are needed, he noted.

Ambitious idea to terraform Mars

Earlier, Musk proposed an ambitious idea to terraform Mars by bombarding the planet’s poles with a large number of nuclear weapons. According to the SpaceX CEO, the explosions will release trapped carbon dioxide that makes up the Martian ice caps. The released gas will thicken the planet’s atmosphere, triggering the greenhouse gas effect, and eventually raising the Martian temperatures.

According to the Roscomos executive director, humanity does not have the capacity to influence in any tangible way Mars’ or Venus’ climate.
