SpaceX’s Elon Musk: We Should Nuke Mars

Elon Musk thinks we should bomb the red planet. Yes, the Elon Musk—the head of Tesla Motors and Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX)—has made headlines again with some of his more creative and controversial thoughts.

During a recent interview appearance on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on September 9, the famous entrepreneur stated that the planet Mars was actually a “fixer-upper planet”. He added that humanity should hit the red planet with a thermonuclear device in order to better facilitate the habitation potential of the heavenly body.

Musk also told new host Colbert that hitting the poles of Mars with atomic bombs would be the quickest method by which to actually warm the planet and thereby clear the way for actual human colonization of the red planet. He offered an alternative method too which was significantly slower. Musk suggested that we pump the planet’s notably thin atmosphere with “greenhouse gases” which would initiate the warming process.

Colbert had a noteworthy response to Musk. He sparked the audience by responding: “Superman doesn’t say ‘let’s drop nuclear bombs.’ That’s Lex Luthor, man.” Colbert’s comment had next-day commentators wondering if Musk sounded more like a super-villain or like someone who thinks out-of-the-box enough to get things done.

Musk has made it no secret that he is all for transporting humans to Mars as well as space exploration in general. He believes that SpaceX should be able to take people into outer space in the next few years. His company is also working on fulfilling a contract with NASA as well.

Colbert also showed a short clip of a Tesla prototype recharging robot—another interest of Musk’s. Colbert asked Musk: “Is that thing gonna attack me in my sleep?” Musk concluded: “For the prototype, I’d recommend not dropping anything while you’re near it.”
