Elon Musk has detailed how humans will survive on Mars within our lifetime

Whether you love him or hate him, you’ve gotta admit that Elon Musk knows how to get people talking. Yeah, nah, he’s the master of dropping the kind of news that gets tongues wagging. But we’re not here to talk about that today. Yeah, nah, we’re here to talk about his plans for Mars.

Apparently, the bloke reckons he’ll have people living on the red planet in our lifetime. To most people, that s**t reads like pure science-fiction, but it’s a bit of an obsession for the bloke, and he reckons he’ll have it happening in our lifetimes.

Apparently, he took to his Twitter account to claim that he could have people living in glass domes on Mars by 2050. According to the Independent, he also explained how he could eventually get people living on a terraformed Mars with a couple of nukes.

“Life in glass domes at first. Eventually, terraformed to support life, like Earth,” he tweeted. “Terraforming will be too slow to be relevant in our lifetime. However, we can establish a human base their in our lifetime. At least a future spacefaring civilization – discovering our ruins – will be impressed humans got that far.”

Obviously, that’s a pretty bold claim, but in fairness to Musk, he’s backed up a few of them before. Still, this is a pretty lofty goal to aspire to, but in one of the most American things anyone’s ever said, he reckons nukes are the future!

“Eventually you can transform Mars into an Earth-like planet,” he said. “There’s a fast way and a slow way. The fast way is to drop thermonucular weapons over the poles.”

Also, his Nuke Mars t-shirts are available on his SpaceX website.

Final thought: We say this every time, but we don’t know whether whether Elon’s trolling, a genius or just been hitting the space-bongs a little too hard. Let us know what you reckon in the comments section.
