The Doomsday clock has been reset to a time of 90 seconds to midnight.

Last year it was set at 100 seconds to midnight.

This was the closest it has ever been to midnight.

The farthest the clock has ever been set away from midnight is 17 minutes but that was decades ago at the end of the Cold War.

Before the reset, rumors swirled that the Ukraine War would move the time on the clock closer to midnight.

The Doomsday clock announcement started with a warning about the Ukraine war, biosecurity and nuclear weapons.

The Doomsday Clock countdown – which acts as a metaphor for the global apocalypse – takes into account the likelihood of emerging threats like war breaking out and the impact of Covid as well as advances in biotechnology and artificial intelligence.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists believes humans can lessen the threats to humanity that they’ve created.

A panel revealed that the new time represents fears over nuclear weapons being used by Russia.
