World is Not Ending, NASA Urges To Remain Calm

World is Not Ending, NASA Urges To Remain Calm

With Dec. 21 coming close, there are reports saying the world is going to end. In order to pacify one and all, the situation reached the state where US government had to make an official statement saying "The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012".

Even NASA for long has been saying the same through a series of articles and videos but there is simmering fear among people as to what if the world ended on the day. "At least once a week I get a message from a young person-as young as 11-who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday", said David Morrison, an astrobiologist from NASA's Ames Research Center.

For all those who are still lingering under the same fear can check out NASA website page, which has given ample evidence that the world will not end in 2012.

The rumor has been flowing for so long and it has also been predicted that there are fair chances that people would take extreme steps before that. It is to be understood that our planet is safe enough from any catastrophic threat in 2012.
