Doomsday- NASA Says It Is Not

The much talked about topic- the doomsday, which falls on the 21st December 2012 has brought about uncontrolled rage and frenzy in different segments of the society across the globe. This has all started due to the ending of the Mayan calendar on this very date, which has been translated by some influential people as the end of the World. To take advantage of the hype, the filmmakers have even produced a film titled "2012" centering around the end of the world. Whatever be the motive, I truly enjoyed the film as it had a certain element of thrill unlike other thrillers. Scores of websites have come up cooking up stories about how the world would end on this particular day. Millions of Doomsday preppers have organized events at different locations and the countdown has already begun. Panic buying of candles and essentials has accelerated not only in China and Russia, but there has been a simultaneous explosion in the sale of survival equipment, food, fuel and emergency shelters in America in preparation for the Mayan calendar's long count deadline: December 21st 2012, the marketoracle.co.uk reports.

Despite all these hearsays, NASA has a different story to tell. It says there is no evidence that the world would end. NASA says the planet Nibiru does not exists, and rumours it could be hiding behind the sun are totally unfounded. The space agency has also rejected apocalyptic theories about unusual alignments of the planets, or that the Earth's magnetic poles could suddenly "flip" to cause calamity. The only thing that is known to happen is the winter solstice which occurs every year on this date. However, conspiracy theorists contend that the American space agency is involved in an elaborate cover up to prevent panic. Back here in Bhutan, not many are concerned with the end of the world story as the Buddhist astrologers also disapproves the untimely end of the era. Thirteen days to go and this Doomsday will be lost with time.
