Dec 21, 2012, end of Mayan calendar or end of the World? – NASA explains

Dec 14 (): NASA says there is no credible evidence for any of the declarations made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.

NASA scientists have been carefully analysing and studying the possibility of the Earth ending in 2012, but concludes that 21st December 2012 it will be nothing more than a normal December solstice.

Moreover, NASA has released a video in response to popular theories that the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012, in a supposed “Mayan apocalypse.”

The video begins as saying, “December 22, 2012. If you’re watching this video it means one thing. The world didn’t end yesterday. According to media reports of an ancient Mayan prophecy, the world was supposed to be destroyed on December 21, 2012. But look around you. The whole thing was a misconception from the very beginning.”

NASA’s video says the idea behind the Mayan calendar in depth, compared it to car’s odometer. At one point, Mayan’s long-form calendar comes back to its original place much as an odometer would do at 100,000 miles. On Dec. 21, the Mayan calendar is thought to roll over again, indicating the passing of 13 baktuns. Each baktun is more than 5,000 years.

The video further says, “None of the thousands of runes, tablets, and standing stones that archaeologists have examined foretell an end of the world”.

Following this discussion of the Mayan beliefs, the NASA video went on to scientifically expose many of the predicted apocalyptic threats to the Earth’s safety. Neither a rogue planet nor the sun’s solar flares may give threat to the world.

“For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence?” NASA posted on its website.

Professor William Saturno too has assured us all through his discoveries the world is not about to end on December 21, 2012. Saturno stands by his findings, however, which he led alongside Boston University undergraduate student Maxwell Chamberlain

“The Mayan calendar does not end,” Saturno says. “It’s a cycle of time.”

The calendar was last reset in August 3114 B.C. The world didn’t end then. Instead, the calendar started a new cycle—one that lasts for every 1,872,000 days.

Saturno is sure to repeat: “The world won’t go away on the 22nd.”
