Off late, I have been fascinated to the idea of a nuclear holocaust. All I am thinking of all day is, what happens if a nuclear was actually breaks out?!
Just yesterday, I read an article on the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. Damn, we were so close to the end of the world. While we don’t even realize, so many things keep happening around us. We all know that nuclear weapons are a threat. But ever imagined? What if a nut head gets to it and just blows it off. It wouldn’t take long for the war to spread across the entire world.
It would be the most horrific war, with the maximum loss of human life (read the entire human civilization) and yet, it would be the shortest of the three world wars!
Anyway, while reading about all these theories and cooking up some on in my head, I stumbled upon something called a Doomsday clock. Trust me it can freak you out! This clock is not an actual clock. Infact, this is an idea developed by some American university. Based on the changing scenarios of the world, the cover page of this university’s research gives an approximate idea of how far doomsday is. It started off with 5 minutes to midnight (which here refers to doomsday) and recorded 17 minutes in 1991. Whose ever idea it was, it was brilliant!
Here’s the link to the wiki page of this doomsday clock. Hope you find it interesting.
