Congratulations, citizens of Earth! The fine folks at the Bulletin for Atomic Sciences have give us exactly one more minute to live, before we all perish in an eventual nuclear holocaust! Think of all the exciting things you can do with your newfound sixty-seconds! I suggest using it to watch this.

This is the only time the clock, which counts down to our demise based on worldwide tension over nuclear weapons and massive climate change, has been set back since its inception in 1947. LiveScience quotes a Bulletin statement, "For the first time since atomic bombs were dropped in 1945, leaders of nuclear weapons states are cooperating to vastly reduce their arsenals and secure all nuclear bomb-making material, and for the first time ever, industrialized and developing countries alike are pledging to limit climate-changing gas emissions that could render our planet nearly uninhabitable."

Being scientists, they make a point to tell us that the clock could also surge forward at any given moment. Sleep well!
