NASA releases Mayan calendar 'told ya so' video 10 days early

The space agency is so confident the world will go on after December 21 that it's already produced and released a video explaining why we didn't end.

NASA is pretty confident the world is not going to end in the next 10 days, regardless of what the Mayan calendar or alleged rogue planet Nibiru might have to say about it.

Recently, NASA scientists gathered for a Google Hangout to debunk the multiple end-of-world theories alleged to transpire later this month. NASA even put together a YouTube video titled "Why the World Didn't End Yesterday" clearly meant to be released on December 22, after the winter solstice doomsday the day before.

The video details how the Mayan calendar doesn't predict the end of the world before we get to see another episode of "Game of Thrones."

But for some reason, the space agency has opted to release the video 10 days early. Perhaps someone at NASA isn't so sure we'd be able to watch it on December 22 after all?
