Scientists from the University of Oxford in the UK have calculated the probability of extinction of humanity through their research. According to the study, the extinction of our generation is more likely than a lightning strike on a person.
The work of scientists from Oxford University in England reveals the possibility of extinction of humanity. The Daily Mail report on the work of scientists from the University of Oxford on the extinction of humanity.
Daily Mail, published in the news, scientists examined 350 thousand years of archaeological data, and based on these data calculated the probability of extinction of humanity said. In the study, the probability of extinction of humanity was calculated as 1 in 14 thousand.
The extinction of our generation is the probability of 1 in 14 thousand, a rate that is much higher than 1 in 700 thousand, which is the probability of a lightning strike. Even a human being attacked by a shark was calculated as a more remote possibility than the end of mankind’s generation.
Scientists from Oxford University used tens of thousands of years of archaeological findings in Ethiopia and Morocco for their research. The probability of extinction was calculated with the data obtained from archaeological findings.
The team of scientists is showing the events of nature among the catastrophes that can bring an end to humanity. However, events such as nuclear war, climate change and unconscious antibiotic use, which can be caused by man-made disasters, can also end the human generation.
