10 reasons that may come to an end
In works of fiction often enough raised the theme of doomsday and put forward a variety of reasons for the apocalypse. In our review of collected 10-ka of the most incredible version end of the world, many of them in the modern world can become a reality.
1. Zombie apocalypse
Although this is the least likely scenario end of the world, but recently the subject of a zombie apocalypse has become very popular. After all, in the end, there are mushrooms-parasites that inhabit the body of insects, why the same can happen to people.
In fact, quite strange that no one has taken such a massive chemical attack on any major city. All that is needed - this pathogen strain of a terrible infectious disease (eg, the same smallpox) with outdated methods of prevention and treatment thereof.
3. Emerging diseases
Given new diseases that occur in recent times, as well as remembering the terrible epidemics that are several hundred years ago, mows the whole country, how can you be sure of that now some evil genius is not working in the laboratory to create a new virus that destroy all mankind.
4. The global natural disaster natural origin
Global warming and climate change on Earth may lead to the formation of huge tsunami that will be capable of destroying entire countries. In fact, more frequent storms around the world over the past 20 years. And one can only hope that this trend will not continue to deteriorate.
5. The black hole of human origin
Although the expanse of the universe, there are black holes that appear close enough to the Earth, most people need to worry about is that the black hole will be created in the laboratory. It sounds crazy, but in fact they are such developments are under way.
It appears, in Yellowstone National Park there is a dormant supervolcano (so-called volcano eruption which could change the climate on the planet). During the last eruption of this volcano 2 million years ago, the sky was thrown 2500 cubic kilometers of dust and ash. What is most sad, no one knows when the next eruption of the Yellowstone monster.
7. Solar flares
It turns out that even solar flares have a negative impact on the Earth. What to speak of solar storms, which are many times more powerful? During the last strong solar storm that occurred nearly 200 years, lit up the telegraph wires. With horror you can imagine what can happen right now. In this way to predict a solar storm does not exist.
Although generally considered a likely destiny of a science fiction movie, actually near the Earth's surprisingly often flying asteroids. It is worth remembering what has resulted in the fall of the Tunguska meteorite, and to what will a collision with a celestial body a hundred times more.
9. The War
Unfortunately, every year in the world is happening more and more military conflicts. Never has the danger of global war was not so strong. But if you will use nuclear weapons, it all die.
10. Artificial intelligence and robots
In 1950 Turing test was first established on the basis of answers to the questions which man must determine with whom he was talking to: a person or a computer program. Recently, for the first time the car has passed the test. Also it has long existed robots that beat humans at chess, as well as robots that are able to draw better than people. What happens when machines become self-reliant and aware of themselves. It is worth only hope that does not happen a situation similar to that which was described in the "Terminator".
