8 Real-Life Doomsday Devices That May Destroy The World

A doomsday device is a hypothetical construction — usually a weapon, or collection of weapons — which could destroy all life on a planet, particularly the Earth, or destroy the planet itself. They have been present in literature and art especially in the 20th century, when advances in science and technology made world destruction (or at least the eradication of all human life) a credible scenario. But how is it in real life?

Unfortunately, not much better. There are a few of insanely powerful weapons that exist … and in the wrong hands? they could destroy us all.
