Circulating message claims that NASA has predicted a total blackout of the planet for a three day period in December 2012 during which the universe will be aligned and the Earth will shift into another dimension.
The claims in the message are fanciful nonsense with no truth to them whatsoever. NASA has made no such prediction. Nor has any other credible scientific entity.

Subject: NASA predicts total blackout on 23-25 Dec 2012 during alignment of Universe.
US scientists predict Universe change, total blackout of planet for 3 days from Dec 23 2012.
It is not the end of the world, it is an alignment of the Universe, where the Sun and the earth will align for the
first time. The earth will shift from the current third dimension to zero dimension, then shift to the forth
dimension. During this transition, the entire Universe will face a big change, and we will see a entire brand new
The 3 days blackout is predicted to happen on Dec 23, 24, 25....during this time, staying calm is most important, hug
each other, pray pray pray, sleep for 3 nights...and those who survive will face a brand new world....for those not
prepared, many will die because of fear. Be happy, enjoy every moment now. Don't worry, pray to God everyday. There
is a lot of talk about what will happen in 2012, but many people don't believe it, and don't want to talk about it
for fear of creating fear and panic. We don't know what will happen, but it is worth listening to USA's NASA talk
about preparation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aj1lyEHbZE&feature=related
Whether it's true or not, better be prepared. No panic, stay calm, just pray. Remember to smile more, love more,
Better avoid traveling during December.
According to this message, which is making its way around social media websites and also circulates via email, NASA has predicted that the earth will experience a total blackout for a three day time period in December 2012. The message claims that during this period, the universe will be aligned and the earth will shift into the zero dimension before shifting to its new home in the fourth dimension. The message recommends that during the blackout time, people stay calm and pray to prepare themselves for a brand new world. But, warns the message, many people who remain unprepared may die of fear during the blackout.
Not surprisingly the claims in the message are complete and utter nonsense. NASA has made no such prediction. Nor has any other credible scientific organization anywhere else in the world.
In what is apparently an utterly lame attempt to make its outlandish claims seem more believable, the message links to a video featuring NASA administrator Charles F. Bolden, Jr. In the video, Bolden does talk about family preparedness but makes no mention of planetary blackouts, universe alignments or even shifts to the zero dimension. The video can be seen in its original context on the NASA website.
And, for the record, there is no mention of such an impending blackout anywhere on the NASA website. Nor are there any reports about it on any credible news or scientific websites.
Perhaps who ever penned this peice of nonsense to begin with meant it as just a leg pull. A really bad science fiction writer perhaps? And a master of understatement? The messages predicts a catastrophic, utterly world changing event but ends with a casual warning to avoid traveling in December! But whatever its motivation, submissions and comments indicate that the message is nevertheless causing fear and anxiety among at least a few of the more wide-eyed among us.
