Elon Musk Wants to Nuke Mars

Billionaire philanthropist and CEO of both Tesla Motors and SpaceX Elon Musk is planning to graduate to the status of full supervillian with his audacious plan to nuke the planet Mars. Speaking to Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, Musk revealed that there are two ways to prepare Mars – “a fixer upper of a planet,” according to Musk – for human colonisation, the “slow way” and the “fast way”. The “fast way”, it seems, involves launching a thermonuclear attack on the Red Planet.

“The fast way is to drop thermonuclear weapons over the poles,” Musk said.

“You’re a supervillain!” Colbert retorted. “Superman doesn’t say, ‘let’s drop nuclear bombs.’ That’s Lex Luthor, man.”

Musk also spoke about the SpaceX Falcon rocket’s poor landing record, saying, “If we could reduce the landing velocity, we could get it to land, and stay upright, and not explode.” He even joked about the Tesla charging snake, quipping, “For the prototype at least, we recommend not dropping anything nearby when it’s in operation.”

Colbert, who considers Musk “an old friend” described his guest as “the real Tony Stark”, and closed the interview with, “Elon Musk is bringing you the future, right now.”
