I want to nuke Venus...The problem with venus is its rotational speed is so slow that the planet keeps growing hotter and hotter. I think we should put together a dozen "super nukes" of a space vehical with about 100, 50 megaton nukes. We should slam it into venus at the right angle to force the planet to rotate faster. Tonne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This would hopefully blow some of the Atmosphere off and we could start taraforming it. Venus is as big as earth and we need it. Venus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "All the planets of the Solar System orbit the Sun in a counter-clockwise direction as viewed from above the Sun's north pole. Most planets also rotate on their axis in a counter-clockwise direction, but Venus rotates clockwise (called "retrograde" rotation) once every 243 Earth daysthe slowest rotation period of any planet. The equator of the Venusian surface rotates at 6.5 km/h, while on Earth rotation speed at the equator is about 1,670 km/h. Venus's rotation has slowed down by 6.5 minutes per Venusian day since the Magellan spacecraft visited it 16 years ago." My plan is to hit the planet at a angle so hard that it speeds up the rotation and knocks some of that atmosphere off. Most theories say that our rotational speed helps form a maginatic field....Think about it. Maybe 10-50 gigatons? That or how much would you think it should be???
