December 21 has come and gone with the prophecy that the world would come to an end turning out to be all hot air and hype.
Dec 21 may have been widely feared as the `Mayan doomsday` but experts say the civilisation never actually predicted the end of the world.
Since long debate has been raging about exactly when doomsday will strike, but now experts have melded science and superstition to bring you the exact time.
The Mayan Doomsday Prophecy had listed December 21 of 2012 as the date of the apocalypse.
In the video, astronomical and planetary experts debunk any notions that the sun will irradiate the atmosphere or that a rogue planet will smash into the Earth.
If you are worried the world will end next year based on the Mayan calendar, relax: the end of time is still far off.
