The madness of the human race knows no bounds. After having polluted our good old Earth to the point of compromising humanity's prospects of survival, we are now seeking to conquer other planets to make them habitable. And if they aren't, all we have to do is force nature a little.
It is this crazy dream that Elon Musk has just revealed by stating without joking that if we bombed the poles of Mars with a few nuclear bombs, the polar ice would melt, releasing enough heat to recreate a liveable atmosphere.
Elon Musk is not a fancy guy. He is a forty-year-old but multi-billionaire entrepreneur who has already achieved several feats of arms: he created Paypal, a revolution in the field of payments, used today by several hundred million people around the world; he founded Tesla Motors, which is one of the most serious alternatives currently available for the creation of new generations of automobiles. He founded Space X, whose objective is to create low-cost launchers to conquer space. Finally, he is the promoter of one of the most revolutionary transport projects: thehyperloop. In short, a man of innovative ideas, who knows how to put them into practice.
