What's the scoop on December 21, 2012? Is it the Zombie Apocalypse at last? Or the mysterious planet Nibiru wreaking havoc with the inner solar system? What did the Mayans know that NASA doesn't?

Join us in the Alden Digital Planetarium for a live, 30-minute presentation that examines the various end-of-the-world scenarios that have received so much attention. Will they hold up under scrutiny? We'll discuss why people fall for pseudo-scientific ideas and finish up with some actual cosmic events that could pose a threat to life on Earth.
