The SpaceX CEO proposed the unconventional idea as a way to terraform the planet for humans to live on.
The peculiar suggestion was offered during an interview on the “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” last Wednesday night during a discussion about humans living on Mars in the future.

Describing Mars as a “fixer-upper of a planet”, Musk indicated that while the first settlers will need to live inside self-contained domes on the surface it should eventually be possible to transform the whole planet so that its atmosphere is hospitable to humans.

When asked how he would achieve this Musk suggested that one way would be to drop thermonuclear weapons over the planet’s poles in order to quickly warm it up.
