Happy Palindrome Week! Here are some other intriguing dates that have been the source of fascination and speculation.
12/21/12 – This date was supposed to mark the end of a 5,126-year era in the Maya Long Count Calendar, but there are varying opinions on what the culmination of this date really means to humanity -- and to the ancient Mayans. While there have been a wave of books and movies depicting a coming apocalypse, some scholars say the Mayans foretold no such doomsday. However, astronomers did predict that for the first time in about 26,000 years, the sun would be aligned with the center of the Milky Way on that date.
