Dropping Science: NASA Explains Why The World Won’t End in 2012

David Morrison is the current Interim Director of NASA’s Lunar Science Institute and a global expert on Earth impact hazards (ie stuff falling from space). Dr. Morrison spends a lot of time answering questions from people about all manner of space based issues, however over the last two years the majority of those questions have been variations on one theme: Will the world end in 2012?

Having grown tired of answering each email individually, Dr Morrison recently decided to post this video, in which he takes on all the doomsday theories at once. I don’t want to spoil anything for you but if you’re thinking of borrowing a million pounds on the understanding that the world is going to be destroyed by an invisible super planet, you may wanna have a little rethink.
