Abstract: "Four, 100kg fusion warheads, launched from a Mars orbiter, can throw into the air, enough dust to cover Mars' South Polar Cap, darken it, and cause it to sublime through increased solar heating. The added atmospheric pressure will set off a runaway advection effect and partially terraform the planet. We have the warheads and the orbiters. We can start whenever we like."
Is this possible? If it is, current launch vehicles such as f9,delta IV,atlas V could accomplish it.
one issue is the use of an imagined 30kg fusion warhead, using a real warhead, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B61_nuclear_bomb weighing it at 300kg, would be more accurate.
