Hello. Apparently … the world is due to end tomorrow
HOWEVER … and this may come as somewhat of a shock to you …
THE WORLD ACTUALLY ENDED IN … 1951.
Calm down … it’s OK … take some nice deep breaths … think of something nice and relaxing …
Not funny huh ?
Well … a film was released in 1951 called When Worlds Collide.
In the film scientists discover that a star named Bellus is on a collision course with Earth and end of the world is little more than eight months away. A spaceship is constructed to transport a lucky few to Zyra, a planet in orbit around Bellus that will pass very close to the Earth, in the faint hope that it can sustain life and save the human race from extinction.
From space, the ship’s television monitor shows Earth’s collision with Bellus. As they approach Zyra, the fuel runs out and they have to make an unpowered rough landing. The passengers disembark and find the planet to be habitable.
