The CEO of Russia's long-term space science program Roscosmos spoke out of Mr. Elon Musk's idea.
Billionaire American entrepreneur and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said he plans to bombard the planet with Mars to cause planet change through the release of carbon dioxide.
On May 12, talking about this in an interview with Tass, the CEO of Russia's long-term space science program Roscosmos, Alexander Bloshenko said, to implement the idea. Therefore, billionaire Elon Musk must have at least 10,000 nuclear warheads .
Elon Musk must have at least 10,000 nuclear warheads to transform Mars.
"If briefly analyzed, some of the plans put forward by SpaceX simply cannot be realized with the current short-term technological development .
For example, for the plan to detonate the polar regions of Mars, for clear results, more than 10,000 missile launches can be carried with the maximum payload, with the corresponding number of nuclear warheads. " , Mr. Alexander noted.
Earlier, billionaire Musk proposed an ambitious idea to the Martian terrain by bombarding the planet's polar regions with a large number of nuclear weapons.
According to SpaceX CEO, such nuclear explosions will release trapped carbon dioxide, creating the "ice" of Mars.
The released gas thickens the planet's atmosphere, activates the greenhouse gas effect and eventually raises the temperature of Mars.
However, according to CEO Roscomos , humans are not able to make an impact on the climate of Mars or Venus in any tangible way .
