    Some netizens argued that Musk's proposed move might actually turn out to be an effective terraforming method, while others wondered if the SpaceX founder was even talking about a planet in the first place.

    Famous entrepreneur and tech mogul Elon Musk has managed to once again stun his sizeable social media audience with a peculiar proposition which involves nuclear weapons and one of the planets in our solar system.

    In his recent tweet, the entrepreneur simply wrote "Nuke Mars!" adding "T-shirt soon" in a follow-up message. The exact meaning of his messages wasn’t immediately clear.

    ​Social media users appeared to take Musk’s sudden declaration in their stride, generally responding with jokes and meme pictures.

    Some argued, perhaps jokingly, that unleashing nukes on Mars might be a good way to terraform the planet.

    And there were also those who quipped that perhaps Musk wasn’t actually referring to a planet.
