Nuclear doomsday clock keeps ticking down

Although nuclear weapons were last used almost 70 years ago, the sound of the nuclear doomsday clock can still be heard. Its persistent ticking echoes in the halls of the United Nations (UN), it accompanies talks at high-level meetings on global peace and security, and it is heard by millions of people around the world who keep working towards the elimination of nuclear weapons.
It feels like a lifetime has passed since the world witnessed the devastation that a nuclear weapon detonation can cause.
