Heres the video here Link

Stephen Petranek is the former Editor-in-Chief of Discover, the leading general interest science magazine in America. In the most recent TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference, he shares his top 10 ways the world will end.

10. We lose the will to survive (depression being the #1 mental illness)

9. Aliens invade Earth (most primitive civilizations do not survive outside contact)

8. Our Ecosystem collapses (e.g. we destroy the marginal tree in the rain forest or run out of fish)

7. Particle accelerator mishap - when we can make devices powerful enough to make black holes we expect them to evaporate, but we can't be sure.

6. Biotech disaster

5. Reversal of Earth's magnetic field

4. Solar flares

3. Global epidemic

2. Rogue black hole

1. Asteroid collision


I though #10 was quite interesting, but the most likely reason the earth will end would be #5 Reversal of Earth's magnetic field. Its going to happen soon!!

Which way do you guys feel its most likely to happen soon?
