When they came up with the idea of a nuclear hydrogen bomb, they knew the detonation would start off a chain reaction of fusing the hydrogen atoms in the atmosphere. How did they know it was a limited chain reaction, and that it wouldn't carry on forever all the way around the globe until it ran out of hydrogen atoms to fuse?

Someone must have worked out it's limitations, before they set the wheels in motion.

Nobody is going to try out something that could destroy the universe, without having a pretty good idea of it's limitations. Well, unless their name is Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and they have a white cat sat on their lap.

What about the Yellowstone caldera? I thought a super volcano eruption at this location is what could set off the end of the world.

Things like that, or a big f-off meteorite hitting the planet could kill us all, at any time.

If there's nothing you can do about, then it's a possibilty that you just have to accept.

If the world ends this way, if everything ends in half a second and without pain, I don't care.
I prefer not to think about that :lol:
Progress is scary but also wonderful...
