Elon Musk makes good on promise to create T-shirts backing his idea to nuke Mars
- Elon Musk has made good on his promise to create T-shirts supporting his idea to drop nuclear bombs on Mars.
- The billionaire tech executive on Saturday tweeted an image of the T-shirts, which contain the slogan "NUKE MARS," and linked off to the SpaceX shop, where they are already being sold.
- He wants to fire nuclear weapons at Mars' poles with the aim of terraforming it — that is, making the surface habitable for humans.
- Musk hopes that this will help with his long-held ambition to colonize Mars.
- The science of nuking Mars isn't watertight, however.
- In 2018, two researchers from the universities of Colorado and Northern Arizona explored the possibility of using CO2 to terraform Mars, and concluded it wouldn't be possible with today's technology.
