Cosmic Calendar Poster with Doomsday Clock
Cosmic Calendar Poster with Doomsday Clock - High Quality Print!
The Cosmic Calendar is a scale that helps to conceptualize the vast amounts of time in the history of the universe in an understandable way.
The concept was first popularized by Carl Sagan on his television series Cosmos. The sections are divided up into the following: the Calendar; the Key; Doomsday Clock; The Legacy of Carl Sagan and New Years Day.
The photograph of Earth by Voyager 1 at 3.7 billion miles (as it was leaving the solar system), which Carl asked to be promoted, is also included!
Copyright 2017; ... The most recent officially announced setting — 2 1/2 minutes to midnight (11:58:30 pm) — was made on January 26, 2017.
Includes information on the "whys" to the change of the doomsday clock by The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.
This poster cites: The sharp rise in nationalism, global threats linked to treaty conflicts and negotiations, dramatically increased political tension, darkening of the landscape in technological global security, the growing momentum and cloaking of scientific data on global warming and escalating extinctions related to climate change.
Also cites: the continued immunological defiance of superbugs, unchecked development of synthetic organisms, greater diversification of weaponry and the evolution of artificial intelligence.
