It hasn't moved in three years, but the symbolic Doomsday Clock's minute hand could be about edge closer to midnight.
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) will host a live international news conference on Thursday to reveal its latest decision regarding the minute hand of the clock.
The last time the clock's minute hand was adjusted was in January 2012, when it pushed ahead one minute, from six to five minutes before midnight.
The conference will begin at 4pm GMT (11am EST) on 22 January 2015.
It is expected that key topics to be discussed at the event will include evidence of accelerating climate change, terrorism and nuclear modernisation.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2919889/Is-end-world-nigh-Atomic-scientists-set-make-major-announcement-Doomsday-Clock.html
