The trusted folk at NASA participated in an online discussion recently to answer questions in relation to the Mayan prophecy of the world’s end on December 21 this year. The verdict? They basically call bullshit on any space/planet-related theory about the expected apocalypse – no rogue planets, not giant meteors, no disastrous solar storms. Personally, I never bought into that theory anyway but I’m pretty glad that it’s not lights out for us just yet.
I guess this means there’ll be a lot less people screaming “YOLO”. I’m not complaining ’bout that either.
