Debunked Rumor: According to NASA, the world is not ending in September 2015. According to the sometimes-reliable Internet, there was supposed to be a huge unnamed asteroid on a collision course with the Gulf of Mexico, set to hit in September 2015.
Evidently this is purely a hoax with no scientific basis. Of course the world could end for some different reason at any moment so it’s always a good idea to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Had the fictional asteroid been real, its impact might have caused huge tidal waves that would have flooded and destroyed all of the US, Mexico and South America, leaving Canada fairly damp.
