The world is not ending in 2012, says NASA

You can halt all plans of impulsive, hedonistic behavior in the next three years: The  National Aeronautics and Space Administration or  NASA refutes rumors that the world is ending on December 21, 2012, reports the AFP. The US space agency embarked on a campaign Monday to debunk myths of an impending apocalypse fueled by  Sony Pictures' $200M movie 2012 whose premise is supposedly predicted by the Mayan calendar.

In the movie  2012, a wayward planet called Nibiru collides with Earth and causes the apocalypse. NASA denounced  as an "internet hoax" websites accusing them  of concealing the existence of such a planet.  "There is no factual basis for these claims," NASA said, otherwise,  "astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye...obviously, it does not exist."
