  • Doomsday clock change from 100 to 90 seconds

Washington, January 24: The doomsday clock has moved closer to midnight in history, indicating how far humanity is still from the end. The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced that it has been reduced to 90 seconds from midnight, which was 100 seconds earlier. It has been revealed that the doomsday clock has been moved closer to midnight due to the increasing nuclear threat and climate crisis in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war. The decision was taken on the recommendations of the Science and Security Board comprising 11 Nobel laureates.

Doomsday Clock
The Doomsday Clock was established in 1947 as an indicator of how close humanity is to self-destruction. It was set up by scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project, which led to the production of nuclear weapons. This includes Albert Einstein. When it was set up it was placed 7 minutes past midnight. The team of scientists is shifting back and forth depending on the situation. The clock is moved closer to midnight when humanity is thought to be on the brink of extinction. If the threat is felt to have subsided, they will move away at midnight. After the end of the Cold War in 1991, midnight was moved to 17 minutes away. This is the farthest the Doomsday Clock has reached midnight in history.
