I hope you haven’t forgotten that Mayan calendar ENDS this year and we were all so desperatly waiting for the big and scary end of the world. One of the most popular reasons for the apocalypse is the planet X, Nibiru, which supposed to collide with the Earth.
NASA was tired that ufologists, trolls and other spammers refer to the scientist and the agency came up with another statement that nothing going to happen and nothing is going to hit our planet in the nearest future, basicly speaking, Planet-X does not exist.
The history of this madness began with the fact that in 1976 Zecharia Sitchin published the book “The Twelfth Planet,” which has its own translation of the Sumerian cuneiform, allegedly mentioning the planet Nibiru approaching the Sun every 3600 years. A few years later, the self-proclaimed psychic Nancy Lieder announced contact with aliens, who warned her that the planet is faced with the Earth in 2003. When this didn’t happen, the date of apocalypse was moved to the year of 2012, year of the end of the long period of the Mayan calendar.
