TerraForming Mars? Thanks To Falcon 9 Rocket, Elon Musk Says It’s Possible

Super-rich tech guru dreams of setting up permanent home on the Red Planet – but would anyone want to live there?

Elon Musk and his firm, SpaceX, made history yesterday after sending a reusable Falcon 9 rocket into the air and then landing it vertically back on Earth.

But this self-styled ” super villain ” doesn’t want to stop scrawling his name onto the annals of posterity just yet.

The billionaire has claimed that one of his future projects could involve building a city on Mars – an achievement which would make him one of the most famous humans of all time.

At a press conference held after the rocket landing, Musk discussed the possibility of putting settlers on the Red Planet.

“I think it really quite dramatically improves my confidence that a city on Mars is possible,” he said.

“That’s what all this is about.”

Musk has no shortage of ideas, but let’s hope he works through them all in a logical order.

He has also suggested dropping a nuclear bomb on the Red Planet , a decision which would hardly help to improve property prices in his Martian metropolis.

However, he hopes that nuking Mars could help to heat up its atmosphere and make the place a bit more suitable for human colonisation.

“It’s a fixer-upper of a planet,” he said.
