Why Musk's 'Nuking Mars' Idea Isn't All That Far-Fetched - Newsy

Elon Musk's comment to Stephen Colbert was great for sensational headlines, but there is some science behind the idea of thermonuclear terraforming.

US and Russian nukes are getting old and could be dangerous, start shipping em to Mars yo lol

That would be ironic if nukes actually caused this to happen to mars in the first place then they reverse the damage.

Makes sense. Mars = Cold Nuke = 1,000,000+ *F Warm Mars = Melted C02 ice Melted C02 ice = Thicker Atmosphere Thicker Atmosphere = Green House Effect Green House Effect = More Martian Heat More Martian Heat = NO LONGER -250 *F!!!! NO LONGER -250 *F!!!! = Happy warm astronauts Happy warm astronauts = Need something to be mad at now Need something to be mad at now = WAR! WAR! = Destroyed planet Destroyed planet = Lets move to Saturns moon Titan now. Lets move to Saturns moon Titan now. = Cycle Restarts Cycle Restarts = United Planets Peacekeeping treaty to keep war in outer space.

I think you finally figured it out . . . a bunch of ATLASt rockets tied together with bungee cords (minus the warheads . . . of course) that would be so affordable we could send the homeless and still make money ! ! !

James Brooks (10 месяцев назад)
Why the MOXIE is not the first option is beyond me... This is like beating a mentally ill person to make them more intelligent. Though it may seem like Mr. Musk has a sound idea. The PvE is real. Machines could do this for us, and who knows, the nukes could release CO2 which could be lost to the ISM due to the gravitational make up. I suggest just drilling until you reach the core, insulate, then make your atmosphere from the inside. Similar to the movie The Matrix, the outside would be deadly, not machines killing, but lack of O2. It may smell like rotten eggs, but with enough time and insulation, a home could be made.

I'm sure no one has to die if it is done correctly . . . Kinda like a small breathing apparatus that extracts the oxygen from the water and an anti-embolism suit
Carlos 11220 (10 месяцев назад)
The travel & exploration of Earth by land or ships use to be dangerous. People died traveling & still do but no where near of that amount when we had primitive form of travel. Now what once took months of travel, now only takes hours, like going from Ny to Cali. I see traveling from earth to other planets in our solar system the same. With our first form of travel will take months & later just hours. Our biggest challenge is going to other solar systems

I'm sure no one has to die if it is done correctly . . . Kinda like a small breathing apparatus that extracts the oxygen from the water and an anti-embolism suit . . .

Fellas the problem with mars is, that its magentic field is way to weak to allow an atmossphere. It doesn't matter on which way we create an atmossphere on mars, as soon as the first solar storm arrives, the atmossphere will be be blown out into the cosmos

Nuke it! It's not like we will do anything with or around Mars for another 40+ years anyways. Also, who cares about it's "natural state" we're going to f it up when we research it anyways. Nasa is just mad because Musk is actually wanting to do something sooner rather than much, much later.

NASA can fuck off, their space program is getting shutdown cause what have they done for us lately?
Midironica (10 месяцев назад)
Nuking Mars sounds attractive, but discussions of terraforming Mars always seem to ignore the crucial fact of what made Mars a frozen waste in the first place, the lack of a magnetosphere. Other people have said this in the comments but it can't be stated enough...Terraforming Mars without first doing something to give the planet defenses against solar radiation would be a titanic waste. Simply terraforming Mars without dealing with the magnetosphere problem would only end up with Mars becoming impossible to make habitable after a few generations of solar radiation sweeping Mar's atmosphere into space.
Rook Castle (10 месяцев назад)
Stupid that’s big business. You want to nuke it send a large piece of ice at it. Then you would have atmosphere.

The cheapest way to colonize Mars is to colonize the Moon before. It just doesn't make sense to go that far before having advanced the technology enough by colonizing our nearest satellite.
RandomAndrei 101 (10 месяцев назад)
obviously it will spread radiation
Leonel Martucci (10 месяцев назад)
it's stupid in the sense that it wouldn't even begin to solve the most difficult problem about colonizing Mars, which is the lack of a magnetosphere. A place like Titan would be easier to colonize
DaiBenduMonk (10 месяцев назад)
There’s a meteor belt not too far away, we should fly those to Mars and Crash them into it instead
packson jollock (10 месяцев назад)
so do we just leave every planet in its natural state? how will we ever colonise anything if we think like that
Galvatorrix (10 месяцев назад)
Actually, Nuking mars is the dumbest idea. First of all, Trying to Terraform a planet ourselves is next to impossible and second, sending people there is also dumb because of the Galactic cosmic rays thats cause humans to become sick with radiation. Our planet has a thick atmosphere which blocks these cosmic rays from hurting us, On mars however, it does not have any atmosphere so it would hurt the people that go there, a better idea would be to go to Titan, because it has water and a thick atmosphere

We should tell Trump there are some illegal aliens on Mars planning to invade the united states. That will certainly make Trump nuke it.

NASA is so full of shit. They're still living in the 70s, it's so pathetic. Privatized space exploration is the obvious next step and suddenly when they're too lazy to do anything their response is "oh but the environment".... where's that attitude on Earth?

Why does NASA have a problem with nuking a dead planet to bring it life?
Hugh Moore (10 месяцев назад)
Maybe because they realize . . . There is no light at the end of this tunnel . . . Just a blinding flash . . . Ten times brighter than the sun . . . and after that . . . the usual darkness . . . that makes us all think . . . that we must have gotten in the wrong line when God was handing out brains.

Even though this idea seems ok... The fact that Mars is not as round as Earth and has no Magnetic field to protect against the sun would still make the planet unable to sustain life.
Ragnarok (10 месяцев назад)
Well, if there are no other options known to make Mars Habitable, why not, or find an altetnative solution to make Mars habitable and colonize it? Or we can just do nothing and just wait for our world to eventually become inhabitable and thus our race dies out.
Wilson (10 месяцев назад)
LOL they don't address the fact that all that released CO2 would just get stripped away from Mars again by the solar wind. Mars has no magnetic field... I'm pretty sure that would be a colossally stupid waste of money.
