2012: The End of Time?

Collision with rogue planet Nibiru. The end of the 13th Baktun of the Mayan calendar. The alignment of the equators of Earth, Sun, and the Milky Way Galaxy. Earth passing through the Galactic Plane. Earth spinning wildly out of control. Disastrous geomagnetic reversal. Solar storms. Global consciousness shift, a reincarnated Quetzalcoatl, and Timewave Zero.

Well, it certainly sounds disastrous, don't you think?

Join us next Tuesday, January 19th, at Cafe Semolino's (map) in Hays for our first Science Cafe of 2010. Dr. Paul Adams, FHSU's Anschutz Professor of Education and Professor of Physics, will give us the background behind these scary-sounding events. More importantly, he will help us understand why each and every one of us should be concerned about the effects of 2012 prophecies:

NASA's Ask an Astrobiologist Web site, for example, has received thousands of questions regarding the 2012 doomsday predictions—some of them disturbing, according to David Morrison, senior scientist with the NASA Astrobiology Institute.

"A lot of [the submitters] are people who are genuinely frightened," Morrison said.

"I've had two teenagers who were considering killing themselves, because they didn't want to be around when the world ends," he said. "Two women in the last two weeks said they were contemplating killing their children and themselves so they wouldn't have to suffer through the end of the world."

Hays' Science Cafe is sponsored by the FHSU Science & Mathematics Education Institute, Kansas Citizens for Science, and Cafe Semolino's.
