Elon Musk wants to bomb Mars with Nuclear weapons in order to make it habitable once again

Elon Musk wants to BOMB Mars with Nuclear weapons, suggesting its the fastest way to “geo-engineer” the red planet.

The SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO claims that nuking the red planet is the best thing we can do in order to heat up the planet and make it more optimal for humans. Pulsing Bombs would be launched towards the Red Planet exploding on Mars creating two ‘artificial suns’ above the planet in order to warm it up. The tricky thing here is that according to Musk, bombs would need to be sent every several seconds in order to maintain the planet warm.

The SpaceX founder has talked about the red planet and his theories of making it habitable once again by heating it up with nuclear bombs that would need to be dropped on Mars’ poles. He also wants to visit the planet one day.


During an interview by Mashable, Elon Musk was asked how he felt about the recent discovery of water on the red planet.

Yeah, that’s good,’ he told Lance Ulanoff and spoke about his brilliant plan to make the red planet livable AGAIN.

‘What I was talking about,’ said Musk, ‘was having a series of very large, by our standards, but very small by calamity standards, essentially having two tiny pulsing suns over the poles.

‘They’re really above the planet.

‘Not on the planet.

‘Every several seconds,’ Musk continued ‘send large fusion bombs over the poles.’

The “Pulsing Bombs” would create artificial suns that would heat the planet, but it’s a process and not a one-time thing explained Musk.

‘A lot of people don’t appreciate that our sun is a giant fusion explosion.’

Why would you want two suns over Mars?

‘So if you have two basically tiny suns over the pole that would warm up the planet,’ said Musk.

‘Then you would gasify frozen carbon dioxide, thicken the atmosphere and warm up the water and all of that would have a greenhouse effect.


“Have a cascading effect to continue warming up the planet.’

Musk states that making Mars habitable again is a process that could be achieved slowly, with the gradual release of greenhouse gases, or could be done quickly with the aid of Nuclear Bombs. Scientists speculate that on Mars, the effects of nuclear bombs might be very different from Earth.

NASA administrator Charles Bolden seems to agree with Elon Musk that it is essential to colonize Mars.

‘It’s important for the preservation of the species, and I want to make sure that my grand-daughters, and great-great-grandaughters, have the opportunity to go there,’ he said.

President Obama seems to agree with both of them predicting back in 2010 that a manned Mars mission could happen in the mid 2030’s.

We know that Mars was once a planet very similar to Earth with an atmosphere and liquid water on its surface, but at some point in the distant past, the red planet cooled down and the atmosphere was swiped from the planet by powerful Solar Storms.

  1. Remarkable example of a “Values Free” and “Solely Goal Directed” intellect. It is the mind set which animated Nazis, and now animates ISIS barbarians; Such a mind would burn all the paintings in the Louvre in order to simplify housekeeping. A mere calculating intelligence without good or common sense.

    1. Please explain why making Mars habitable for life would be without good?

      1. Terraforming Mars is not a bad thing, assuming there’s no advanced life there now. But using nukes in the process, in such a large scale, would also make the planet uninhabitable to us for a long time. Visit Hiroshima & Nagasaki, or Japans Fukashima nuclear power plant melt down site to get an idea of this.

        1. Okay, Elon Musk elaborated upon his idea some more after the TV show. The idea is not to nuke the surface of Mars but from far away in order to generate heat and thus warm up the poles. From such a distance that harmful radiation will not reach Mars. The goal is to make Mars habitable in a short time. Radiation would not serve that goal of course.

  2. this does not sound at all like Musk, plus the theory even if considered would be dumb and unfeasible

    1. This article is not accurate in the first half. The Elon Musk quotes in the second half are accurate, but still inaccurately presented. In order to get a better understanding please check the sources.
