The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is a news website covering nuclear issues, climate change and disruptive technology. What connects these issues is a driving belief that because humans created them, we can control them.
The Bulletin is also the nonprofit behind the iconic Doomsday Clock, which has been called “the most powerful piece of information design of the 20th century.”
Notable contributors and figures featured in the Bulletin include Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Ruth Adams, Stephen Hawking, Christine Todd Whitman, U.S. Secretary of Defense William J. Perry, and multiple Nobel laureates.
The Bulletin was founded in 1945 by Manhattan Project scientists who “could not remain aloof to the consequences of their work.” Our mission is to equip the public, policymakers, and scientists with the information needed to reduce man-made threats to our existence. The Bulletin is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
