Doomsday Clock was reset Thursday to just 100 seconds before midnight The Doomsday Clock was reset Thursday to just 100 seconds before midnight -- the closest we have ever been to the complete and total annihilation of the earth (well, at least metaphorically). Midnight on the Clock symbolizes the end of the world, and each year, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists decides what time it is. "It is 100 seconds to midnight. We are now expressing how close the world is to catastrophe in seconds -- not hours, or even minutes," the Bulletin's President Rachel Bronson said in a statement. "We now face a true emergency -- an absolutely unacceptable state of world affairs that has eliminated any margin for error or further delay So what factors determine how close we are to midnight? Mainly, the threat of nuclear weapons and climate change, Bronson said. When the Clock was created in 1947, the greatest threat to humanity was nuclear war as the US and Soviet Union were heade

Scientists re-create voice of 3000-year-old mummy

Scientists re-create voice of 3000-year-old mummy It may not sound like much, but the audio clip  is the first reconstruction of an ancient human voice one belonging to a 3000-year-old Egyptian mummy named Nesyamun. To recover this echo from the past, scientists placed the mummy in a computerized tomography scanner (pictured). This allowed them to create a 3D model of his vocal tract, the dimensions of which shape the unique sound of a person’s voice. The researchers then synthesized Nesyamun’s voice by 3D printing a model of his airway and connecting it to an electronic larynx, an artificial voice box that provides a noise source. The resulting utterance is brief, but it gives a sense of what this ancient Egyptian may have sounded like, the team concludes today in Scientific Reports. Based on writings on Nesyamun’s coffin and the objects he was buried with, researchers know that he was an Egyptian priest and scribe who likely sang and spoke to the gods as part of his ritual duties.
