Default Apocalypse not now: 2012 doomsday predictions debunked by NASA

On Dec. 21, 2012, many doomsday believers fear the apocalypse anything from a rogue planet smashing into us to our world spinning end over end. However, the world should expect nothing more next year than the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, NASA says.

Many people point to the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar on Dec. 21, 2012 as evidence of the coming apocalypse, but astronomers have been quick to stress that there is nothing to be concerned about.
