Question

Doug Craig via Facebook asked:

Do scientists ever get scared of accidentally destroying the world?

Answer

Graeme -   Well, most of my work is actually on a computer, so that's fairly safe, so unless the computer is going to blow up itself, then were okay.  Other scientists?  I guess it depends.  Chemists, I don't think there's a big risk that were going to blow up the world.

Helen -   I think us Marine Biologists are fairly safe as well, but its always something worth bearing in mind,  I think, destroying the world accidentally through science no, no, no.
