Created in 1947 by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the symbolic Doomsday Clock uses the analogy of the human race being at a time that is a few minutes to midnight where the figurative midnight represents obliteration by nuclear weapons. Since 2007 the threat also take into account climate-changing technologies and 'new developments in the life sciences and nanotechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm'. Since the Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 at 7 minutes to midnight it has been advanced or rewound 19 times. As of 10 a.m. EST/1500 GMT on January 14, 2010 in New York City, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock back to stand at 6 minutes to midnight.
