SpaceX Starship | Why Elon Musk Wants to Nuke Mars?

In the late hours of Thursday 15th August evening, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made a bizarre declaration over Twitter.
“Nuke Mars!” he told his 27.8 million followers.
A tech billionaire acquiring nukes to smash into the nearest planet seems like a scrapped James Bond storyline, but Musk has previously claimed there’s scientific merit to the idea. Musk has a different idea about to turn uninhabitable places into lovely new neighborhoods.
Back in 2015, the billionaire famously suggested the best way to ‘terraform’ Mars and make it suitable for human habitation is by hitting it with nuclear weapons.
The theory behind Elon’s plan relies on melting the polar ice caps of Mars to release CO2 into the atmosphere to create a greenhouse effect which increases pressure and temperature. Meaning humans could potentially move around Mars with just a breathing apparatus. Musk’s other idea is a giant, artificial sun that gradually releases the gas over time. Nuclear weapons sounds like a drastic idea, but compared to pulsating suns, it could be both faster and slightly more realistic.
The optics are questionable, to say the very least. During a 2015 appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Musk mentioned the same idea and Colbert responded with incredulity: “You’re a supervillain! That’s what a supervillain does!”
Mars is not particularly hospitable to humans right now, so the logic behind nuking the planet is that humans could intervene to make it more hospitable.
Scientists were not entirely convinced by Elon’s plan and feared nuking the Red Planet would be counterproductive and make it even less hospitable.
In This video Engineering Today will discuss, Why Elon Musk Wants to Nuke Mars? How the Plan Could Work? Why It May Not Work practically?
Let’s get into details.
