Doomsday Clock Resets: Is This the End?

At 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) reset the famous "Doomsday Clock" to six minutes to midnight from its previous position of five minutes to midnight. This shift of one minute, the smallest adjustment in the history of the clock, indicates that the BAS is slightly more optimistic that the world might be able to address its problems and increase its security.
