The year 2015 starts with a lot of dramatic events in the world. A series of events that led to display the clock of the apocalypse at 23:57, is 3 minutes before the end of the world.
Do you know what is the clock of the apocalypse (or the Doomsday Clock)?The end of the world or the apocalypse clock is a conceptual clock created cold (1947) at the beginning of the war. It announces a global cataclysm which will conclude by the end of the world when the hands approach more in addition to midnight.
The mechanism of the clock rests on many factors like:
- nuclear threats: possibility of global nuclear war
- Climate: climate warming
- the problems of hydrocarbons: oil peak oil, control of resources
- the new technology: the advance of nanotechnology and biotechnology
The origin of this infernal clock goes back to the Manhattan Project (code name of the research project for the first atomic bomb), it is maintained since 1947 by the members of the Board of Directors of the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
