Blowing up Mars will make it more like Earth, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The 44-year-old business magnate who appeared on CBS’ new “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert said nuking the red planet is the quickest way to make it more welcoming to human life.
“Eventually you can transform Mars into an Earth-like planet. Just warm it up,” Musk said during the show’s second episode, calling Mars a “fixer upper of a planet.”
“There’s the fast way and the slow way,” Musk said, adding that dropping “nuclear weapons over the poles” would yield the speediest results.
