Elon Musk, the co-founder of Tesla and SpaceX, proposes to bomb Mars with nuclear weapons and these are his motives.

Elon Musk wants to go Mars but the atmosphere on the red planet not letting go of that any time soon. So for that purpose, he has placed himself in the spotlight of the controversy for having proposed to nuke Mars, but why should the tycoon say something like that?

The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla wants to launch nuclear bombs on Mars to make the planet more habitable and thus house humanity … or at least that made us glimpse through his official Twitter account.

The billionaire believes that, by hitting the red planet, the planet’s polar caps could melt and release large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which would essentially create a greenhouse effect that could raise the planet’s temperature and air pressure.

It is not the first time that Musk suggests bombing Mars. In fact, in 2015, the tycoon had already shared this idea, explaining and arguing that it would be easier to inhabit Mars for humans, a plan that is projected for less than 100 years.

We do not know if Elon Musk is serious about this, but there is certainty that the billionaire has clear and strong intentions to make humans an interplanetary species, since his company, SpaceX, is working on a prototype of his rocket to Mars called Starship or BRF, which would eventually move humans to the planet.
