11 Ways The World Could End

Since the 1500s, there have been more than150 documented predictions of when the world is going to end. Luckily for us, none of themhave come true…yet. However, you'll be surprised that not allof them are destructive. Here are some terrifyingly amazing ways theworld, genuinely could end. When you think of scientists working on superviruses, you probably picture Hazmat workers, deep in a mountain bunker, studying vats fullof insidious green liquid. But these labs do actually exist! Maybe notworking for some shady Bondstyle villain looking to ransom the world away to the highestbidder, but for pharmaceutical companies and

government agencies studying ways to curedangerous pathogens. But what happens when a vial full of an extremely dangerous virusbreaks out of containment, or is misplacedé Over the years, there have been numerous documentedcases of dangerous viruses escaping from laboratories around the world. One of these happened asrecently as 2009. A group of scientists based in Europe, workingwith Baxter Pharmaceuticals, were conducting lab tests on a seasonal flu strain.Without realizing it, Baxter had sent them live supplies of the H5N1 virus, better knownas “bird flu,â€� which has a mortality rate higher than 60%. One of the world's deadliestviruses was handled and distributed to three

other labs without any pathogen safety protocolsin place. The grave error was only realized when onelab worker in the Czech Republic inoculated a group of ferrets with samples of the “seasonflu� batch, and was horrified when they all died.The scientists were immediately placed under quarantine and monitored for signs of thedeadly virus. Luckily, none of them were infected and all the scientists were freed with a cleanbill of health. Two years later, these same strains of avianand human flu were combined in a laboratory, successfully creating “the most dangerousvirus in history.� The virus was highly

pathogenic, while retaining its dangerouslyhigh fatality rate. If it got loose, it could kill 60% of the world's population in afreakishly short amount of time – a truly apocalyptic notion.Some say it's only a matter of time before this kind of virus escapes containment andwreaks havoc on mankind. After going through two world wars, you wouldthink that the world would have learned to get along by now. But unfortunately for thesurvival of humanity, we are constantly under threat of triggering the final war – NuclearArmageddon. Mutually Assured Destruction, like its acronymsuggests, is one of the maddest doctrines

ever devised. It ensures that if a countrywere to ever use a nuclear weapon on another state with the same capability, both sideswould unleash their entire nuclear arsenal, bringing about the complete annihilation ofboth countries. With the resulting nuclear winter, and the likely participation of othercountries in the exchange, this would almost certainly lead to destruction and death onan apocalyptic scale. There are over 15,000 nuclear warheads inthe world, with more than 4000 ready to fire at any one time. That would make one hellof a firework show, but probably not one you'd want to be around to watch.There have been a few “close calls� since

we first developed nuclear weapons. A surprisingnumber of these were technical glitches that nearly started World War 3, on both sidesof the Cold War. The average yield of a modern nuclear weaponis around 500 kilotons of TNT, that's 25 times more powerful than the bomb droppedon Nagasaki. Each one of these 500 kiloton bombs are powerful enough to flatten hugeparts of a large modern city such as New York, or London.And there exists some truly unimaginably powerful weapons, like the Tsar Bomba, which had ayield of more than 50 megatonnes. That's two and a half THOUSAND times more powerfulthan the one dropped on Nagasaki. Thankfully

10 APOCALYPTIC EVENTS That Could End the World TOMORROW

Studies have shown that the only thing that can really save you duringan apocalypse is a beard. It's science. So, people have beenpredicting the end of the world for hundreds of years. There's just somethingabout the end of all things that fascinates people. Now, of course most of these predictions

have either been unfoundedor just flat out wrong. I mean, remember Y2K andthe Mayan Apocalypseé But despite those predictions, there are theories that exist, created by the scientific community that describe the most likely scenarios that could end all life on Earth. So this week, I gatheredthe most interesting

and somewhat disturbingones to share with you all. So, here they are, 10 Apocalyptic Events ThatCould End the World Tomorrow. Number is The Big Crunch. The Big Crunch theory saysthe expansion of the universe first created by the originalBig Bang will eventually halt, at which point it will begin to contract from the force of its own gravity,

sucking everything that existsback into a singularity. That means that everygalaxy, star, and planet would cease to exist, whichof course includes Earth, and by extension, us. Now, this shouldn't worryyou for two reasons. First, from what we currently know, the universe is not only still expanding, but it's expanding atan accelerating rate.

So, you safe for now baby. Secondly, if this did happen, there would be no warning, anyways. You would just suddenly be shrunk to a very, very smallsize and then poof, gone. Number two is the HeatDeath of the Universe. This theory's basically the exact opposite of The Big Crunch,

which says gravity willnever halt the expansion of the universe, and that it will continueto widen and widen forever. So, basically, you're safe then, righté Well, not exactly. The laws of thermodynamics say that if the universe continuesto infinitely expand, that all matter in theuniverse will eventually
