ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the aims and achievements of the journal "Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists," since its founding in 1945. The Bulletin has been representing well the "conscience of the international scientific community" for the last 37 years. The prime concern of the Bulletin has always been the avoidance of nuclear war. The Bulletin's "Doomsday Clock," which has been a reliable indicator of the danger of the outbreak of nuclear war, is closely monitoring the status of the Soviet-U.S. nuclear arms race and confrontation. The Bulletin's Clock stands four minutes before midnight at present. The Clock serves as a reminder that the paramount task facing peace-loving individuals the world over, is to diminish the dangers of a nuclear war.
