The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved its Doomsday Clock to just 90 seconds to midnight on Tuesday, citing the Ukraine-Russia war as a potential catalyst for the end of the world.

The group said humanity is the “closest it has ever been to annihilation” because “The possibility that the conflict could spin out of anyone’s control remains high.”

Manhattan Project scientists started the Doomsday Clock in 1947 to illustrate how close mankind is to the end of the world and to ultimately “frighten men into rationality.”

There is a chance the clock could be moved further away from midnight if global tensions calm down.
