No doomsday on December 21: NASA
Washington: Once again 'Earth's doomsday' stories doing rounds over social networking sites have received a tame end. The NASA scientists allaying people's fear have termed it as 'internet hoax' and told that world won't end on December 21, 2012.

In statement published on its website, the scientists have said, "The world will not end in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012,"

According to doomsday rumour Nibiru, a planet discovered by the Sumerians is heading towards Earth and will collide with it on December 21. However, scientists have termed it as mere piece of imagination and no reality attached to it.

The statement went on to elaborate that earlier doomsday was predicted for May 2003 but nothing took place and the date was shifted to December 2012 and was associated to the end of ancient Maya calander's one cycyle in winter solstice in 2012 – December 21, 2012.

Dismissing speculations on it, NASA went on to specify that Maya calendar does not end in December 2012. It stated, "This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then - just as your calendar begins again on January 1 - another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar."

They went on to elaborate it stating that Nibiru and other planets are just an internet hoax. They claimed that if such an encounter was going to happen then astronomers would have seen it and it would have been visible with naked eye also.

Dragging name of Eris dwarf small planet in outer solar system into the controversy, it said that it can come closest to earth at a distance of 4 billion miles.
