Dec 20 (): The space agency, NASA says that it has been flooded with fearful emails and calls continuously from people enquiring about the supposed end of the world — which is actually set to take place on Dec 21, Friday 2012.
An agency spokesman, Dwayne Brown said NASA has been typically receiving calls for the past few months. They received about 90 emails or calls per week with the questions from people related to the doomsday. He said, in recent weeks the number has climbed up sharply — from 200 to 300 people contacting NASA in a day to enquire about the end of the world.
The different questions people asking were – Will Earth face a crash with a rogue planet? Will the world be in darkness for three days? or Will the sun explode?
In short, NASA says, “The world will not end in 2012.”
NASA also made a video titled “Why the World Didn’t End Yesterday”, to imply to the world the truth about the doomsday. The video suggests Dec. 22 as release date, but Brown said NASA has posted this four-minute video last week to help spread its positive message to the masses.
The video that was posted online included several interviews with scientists, which gave a clear picture about the doomsday and Brown added the webpage has drawn more than 4.6 million views.
The website said our planet, Earth has been moving along very well for more than 4 billion years and scientists worldwide assure all there is no threat connected with 2012.
The space agency while addressing about the concerns about the ancient Mayan calendar explained that Dec. 21, 2012 is the date that denotes the end of the Mayan long-count period but then – just as our calendar, which ends on December 31st begins again on January 1st – another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.
