The Doomsday Clock marks 90 seconds to the end of the world and is the closest the hands have ever come to doomsday

Every January the hands of the Doomsday Clock are adjusted. This system, created in 1947, indicates in a countdown how much is left until its hands symbolically mark 12:00 midnight, that is, the last day on Earth.

This last week of January 2023, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Science and Safety Council moved the hands of the Doomsday Clock closer to midnight than they have ever been.

This is the first change in three years in the clock time, which now stands at 90 seconds after midnight. This, in large part to the growing dangers of Russia’s senseless invasion of Ukraine, according to CNN.

In January the hands of the Doomsday Clock are adjusted. How much longer until the apocalypse?

The Clock is a universally recognized indicator of the world’s profound vulnerability to nuclear weapons.

What is the Clock of the Apocalypse or the Last Judgment?

Founded by Albert Einstein and the University of Chicago scientists who developed the first atomic weapons, the Clock is a universally recognized indicator of the world’s profound vulnerability to nuclear weapons.

In addition to other threats such as climate change and disruptive technologies. The closer to midnight, the greater the existential danger.

As the war in Ukraine approaches its second year, the world is at a very dangerous time.

The clock has been adjusted about 20 times since it was created by scientists. Never in the 76-year history of the Doomsday Clock has come so close to a global catastrophe.

The Doomsday Clock is set each year by experts on the Bulletin’s Science and Safety Council in consultation with its Board of Sponsors, which includes 11 Nobel laureates.

When the clock strikes midnight, it means that some kind of nuclear exchange or catastrophic climate change has occurred that will wipe out humanity before long.

Clock Hour is not intended to measure threats, but rather to spark conversations and foster public engagement on scientific issues such as climate change and nuclear disarmament.
