Happy New Year to you all.
It seems that NASA have singled out the movie '2012' as being the most scientifically flawed science-fiction film yet. Obviously they take their science-fiction seriously. The premise of '2012' is the Mayan prediction that civilization will come to an end on December 21, 2012. While not questioning the date, NASA are none to happy about the scientific basis for the film's global apocalypse. Perhaps invading aliens would have been a better plot line. ***done to death I hear you say***
Now if you thought you would be around for Marathon's coming of age party... think again. Bungie delayed the release of Marathon until December 21, 1994 for a reason. 'Waiting for the boxes' they said, but the first copies shipped without boxes! When Marathon turns 18 what will you be doing... or not if the Mayan prediction is accurate. ;)
