Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse, experts from NASA have come forward with a rather sinister prediction...
We just can't catch a break, can we?I think we can all agree that, so far, 2020 has been a downright dreadful year.
First, there were bushfires...And then along came a global medical pandemic.
And now, we may just have an asteroid on our hands.Experts from NASA have come forward this week with claims that an asteroid may very well be making a bee-line to our planet... And the date in which it will hit is nothing short of eerie.
Now, these types of apocalyptic predictions aren't uncommon.Doomsday theorists went crazy when the Mayan calendar - a system of calendars used in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica and in other modern communities in the Guatemalan highlands, Chiapas, and Mexico - announced that the world would be ending on December 21st, 2012.
The 2012 "end of the world" became somewhat of a phenomenon...And people all over the world braced themselves for their grizzly end.
The way in which the world would end wasn't specified in the calendar...But many speculated natural disasters such as a giant tidal wave, an Earth-wide earthquake, or a tremendous volcanic eruption.
And, of course, the huge asteroid plummeting into Earth was a popular theory, too.It's what wiped out the dinosaurs, right?
As the infamous date approached, tensions surrounding the end of the world rose...And many people were genuinely preparing for the end, with some throwing doomsday parties and others stockpiling on supplies and building underground bunkers.
But, the 21st of December arrived...And, guess what? The world didn't end after all!
Most of us breathed a sigh of relief and went on to enjoy our Christmas worry-free...
But the lack of asteroids confused a lot of people, and they were left wanting answers. When is the end of the world?
