On his web page, "Ask an Astrobiologist," local NASA scientist David Morrison has received more than 5,000 questions about the supposed end of the world tomorrow.
Most of them have to do with the notion that a planet called Nibiru, hidden behind the sun, will come crashing into earth when the Mayan calender ends.
Morrison says the scenario is simply impossible.
"There are at least 10,000 professional astronomers, and 100,000 amateur astronomers that could easily see it," Morrison says in a YouTube video posted on the NASA website. "If it were real they'd have been tracking it for many years. There is no evidence for its existence."
"Some people actually sent me coordinates," for the planet which led nowhere, Morrison says.
Morrison says you wouldn't need a telescope to see a planet approaching the earth either. It would be too large in the sky to miss.
"People seem to want for there to be a cataclysm -- well, there isn't going to be one," he says. "Don't worry about it, have a good 2013."
