Does it feel like there's no hope, and we're spiraling toward oblivion?
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the keepers of what is called the Doomsday Clock, will take a look at the state of the world today and are expected to move the clock one minute closer to "midnight," The Los Angeles Times reported.
The clock is a metaphor for how close the world is to a catastrophe.
However, they did not make that drastic of a move. Rather, the scientists moved the clock half a minute, or 30 seconds, closer to doomsday. The clock now sits at 2 1/2 minutes.
