The minute hand of the famous Doomsday Clock will be moved at 3pm tomorrow afternoon, for the first time in two years.
The timepiece in New York conveys how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction, which is represented by midnight.
Today the public can watch the change for the first time via a live web feed.
A spokesman said: 'Factors influencing the latest Doomsday Clock change include international negotiations on nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation, expansion of civilian nuclear power, the possibilities of nuclear terrorism, and climate change.'
