7 coming doomsday scenarios
7 coming doomsday scenarios
You can choose the side of the skeptics violent or believe in the prophecies of the ancient Maya, but can not categorically deny that the end of the world will come tomorrow. Below are seven scenarios of doom tomorrow.
1. The fall of an asteroid.
Asteroids can do with people in the same way as the dinosaurs. Most of the objects that fall on each day of the Earth from space, have a small size, so completely burned during re-entry. Scientists agree that an asteroid with a diameter of more than 1.6 km will be able to destroy the earth, but the thing – these “instances” meet once in 10 million years.
According to scientists, the end of the era of the dinosaurs laid asteroid more than 9.6 km. Agency NASA says asteroid of this size in the near future the Earth is not threatened.
2. Nuclear war.
What people forget about the threat of nuclear war since the end of the “cold war” does not mean that the possibility of its occurrence has completely disappeared. In 2008, the monthly scientific journal Physics Today published an article, which was painted in detail the consequences of a nuclear war in the event of its occurrence. Researchers concluded that the 100 nuclear bombs provoke ‘nuclear winter’, which will last about 1,000 years. There are about 1000 reasons why people can not survive the “nuclear winter.”
Now, it is worth mentioning that today is known nine states possessing nuclear weapons, but only 5 of them signed the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, NNT). From South Korea, which casts nuclear missiles into the air like confetti, today the threat looming ever.
3. The eruption of a volcano.
If the majority thought that the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano (Eyjafjallajökull) in Iceland has caused big problems – think again. More than two million years ago by volcanic eruptions in Yellowstone National Park (Yellowstone National Park) in the air rose 600,000 cubic meters of dust and ash, causing 10 thousand times more disastrous consequences. Need several such eruptions to ‘put Earth on its knees. ” Research conducted by scientists suggest that an eruption in Yellowstone National Park will begin soon.
4. Biological weapons.
Most concerns can be skeptical, but biological weapons pose a real threat. Perhaps the effects of biological weapons were too exaggerated in the past, but now so you can kill most of the population. Corny, but bred in the laboratory dies of avian influenza and other pathogens can reduce the world’s population by half. Looking at the list of institutions that are involved in the research of biological weapons, it is worth considering.
5. Flashes on the Sun .
Solar flares happen all the time. Sun sends charged particles that at 4 million miles per hour with a whistle passes through the atmosphere, causing the electromagnetic chaos. In such a large scale outbreak could cause on Earth phenomena like the northern lights. The strongest geomagnetic storm in 500 years occurred in 1859. The consequences were disastrous.
6. Black holes.
Since then, as was the development of the first atomic bomb in 1945, scientists have always wondered how much can be catastrophic consequences of nuclear reactions? A new wave of anxiety came along with news from the Brookhaven National Laboratory (Brookhaven National Laboratory, BNL) the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, (Large Hadron Collider, LHC). Most scholars today argue that the experiments at the LHC will lead to a big black hole, which “absorbs” the Earth.
7. The Matrix Reloaded.
Perhaps the most extraordinary future doomsday scenario. In this scenario the simulated world of supercomputers (matrix) in which we live, cease to exist.
