// Bookmark Page ?>
In 2002 the doomsday clock is set forward by two minutes to 7 minutes to midnight due to the raised concerns of terrorist attacks due to the September 11th attack on the twin towers in 2001.
There is also news in 2002 that the United States planned on designing new nuclear weapons capable of penetrating deeply dug in targets and rejects the arms control treaties while announcing their rejection of the Anti-Ballistic missile control treaty.
The nuclear stockpile for both the United States and Russia continues to decline.
