So confident are NASA that the apocalypse will not happen on December 21st that they have released a video 10 days ahead of schedule entitled íWhy the World Didnít End Yesterdayí.
Outlining point by point each of the so called ímythsí that surround the end of the Mayan calendar, astronomical and planetary experts debunk any notions that the sun will irradiate the atmosphere or that a rogue planet will smash into our Earth.
But while no soul will be around to point and laugh at anyone from the U.S. space agency should they be wrong, NASA scientists seem so sure that life will go on that the video meant to be released on December 22nd was put out yesterday.
