How our world could end?

Melbourne, Sept. 14 : Some of the world's geniuses have come together to draw up some real-life doomsday scenarios - and work out how mankind could avoid getting wiped out.


The members of the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, led by Astronomer Royal Martin Rees and including Stephen Hawking, have said that the once the threats are identified they intend to devise methods to protect mankind, News.com.au reported.

The group has said that the world could end through cyber attacks, where the networks collapse due to action by enemy nations or terrorists, the paralysis could result in society breaking down.

Engineered infection was also labelled as a threat to world.
