Interactive video lesson plan for: Beyond 2012: Google+ Hangout with NASA

Activity overview:

Stories about the fictional planet Nibiru and predictions of the end of the world in December 2012 have blossomed on the Internet. Contrary to some of the common beliefs out there, Dec. 21, 2012 won't be the end of the world as we know, however, it will be another winter solstice.

Social media users joined NASA and other scientists for a lively discussion at 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 to discuss the 2012 rumors propagated across the internet. We had a great panel of experts on hand including:

- David Morrison, astrobiologist from NASA's Ames Research Center
- Don Yeomans, asteroid scientist from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
- Mitzi Adams, solar/archaeoastronomer from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center
- Lika Guhathakurta, heliophysicist from NASA Headquarters
- Paul Hertz, astrophysicist from NASA Headquarters
- Andrew Fraknoi, science educator from Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, Calif.
