Elon Musk is again in the news for tweeting about nuking Mars once again. This was one of the oldest plans of Musk that he intends to execute now. On a social media platform, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is very vocal about using nuclear weapons on Mars. It may seem very supervillainous just like the ones shown in the comic books but it is a plan believed to help make Mars habitable for human colonization. The entire context may seem very funny and unrealistic, but for SpaceX, it is the next-stage experiment that has to be executed as soon as possible. Musk had earlier joked about selling t-shirts printed with the Mars-nuking plan.
There were people giving out some ideas on t-shirt designs and Musk himself had a unique and new version of his Nuke Mars t-shirt. The black t-shirt with the planet and Nuke Mars printed on it was the one Musk had created. SpaceX has already declared that it will be starting the sale of t-shirts as soon as possible. This garnered him quite some attention with people coming up with their own versions of the t-shirts. Well, just like the t-shirt plan was quick and successful, SpaceX plans to kick start the nuke Mars project soon. In less than a century, Mars will have humans habiting there.
The rocket to Mars named Starship has its prototype version being tested before it is ready to carry humans to Mars. SpaceX had to let go off 10% of its workforce and thus, the company has to first ensure its credibility. Likewise, NASA and SpaceX team up for its Crew Dragon’s first inaugural launch dubbed Demo-2 to the International Space Station (ISS) and it is dicey about taking place by the end of this year. The space agency along with NASA performed a complete rehearsal of crew recovery and extraction procedures with two NASA astronauts scheduled to take their first flight to the Red Planet.
