Doomsday Clock is about to be set for 2024 as we’re closer to midnight than ever before

Set your calendars, because experts are about to reveal just how close we are to the apocalypse.

Just to inject a bit of fear into your day, when was the last time you thought about the Doomsday Clock?


You know, the symbolic timepiece showing how close the world is to ending.


As you can probably imagine with the state of things right now, it’s not looking particularly good for us.


Last year scientists talked about the “unprecedented danger” posed by the Russia-Ukraine war, with the clock shifting to 90 seconds away from striking 12 – the closest it has ever been.



Midnight, on this timepiece, is what’s known as Doomsday – something we’re not particularly keen on meeting any time soon.


On Tuesday, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists will announce whether the clock will remain the same, move forward, or move back.


Experts from this non-profit organization established the countdown back in 1947, to provide a simple (and pretty terrifying) way of demonstrating the danger to the Earth and humanity posed by nuclear war. These were the same scientists working on the Manhattan Project to design and build the first atomic bomb.


It was originally intended as a warning about the threat of nuclear armageddon, but it’s evolved to take other dangers into account – things like climate change or advances in biotechnology.
