World END 2012 ..?

In hear we are going to show you different talks about 2012 world end. You Desired what will happen ?

Betelgeuse Not Likely to Explode, Become Second Sun..

Rumors of Betelgeuse’s death have been greatly exaggerated.
Despite some recent, breathless reports on the star Betelgeuse going supernova and ’sploding all over the place, temporarily adding a second sun in the Earth sky but also possibly proving the Mayans correct in their assumption that the world will end in 2012, none of this is likely to happen. As awesome as all of that might be. Well, the ’sploding/second sun part, at least. And actually, Betelgeuse has been “dying” for a while. You might call it the Dr. Mark Greene of stars.
Phil Plait, who writes the Bad Astronomy blog at Discover, has given us all the pleasure of dispelling the silly rumors that the most famous star in Orion is going to explode by the end of next year by mercilessly mocking other blogs who reported this as fact. Namely, and “bastion of antiscience,” The Huffington Post:
It’s the question of when that the two articles go off the rails. Betelgeuse may explode tomorrow night, or it may not go kerblooie until the year 100,000 A.D. We don’t know. But given that huge range, the odds of it blowing up next year are pretty slim. And clearly, the original article was really trying to tie in the 2012 date to this, even when it has nothing to do with anything. The tie-in was a rickety link to scuttlebutt on the web about it, but that’s about it. 
What’s worse, the HuffPo article attributes the date to Dr. Carter himself, but in the original article he never says anything about it; the connection is all made by the article author. Given how popular HuffPo is, I imagine a lot of people will now think an actual scientist is saying Betelgeuse will blow up in 2012.

Plait goes on to say that while he’s glad no one misrepresented the supposed danger of Betelgeuse exploding (it’s way too far away), an explosion from over 600 light years away would never show up on Earth’s horizon in a way that it would look like a second sun, let alone provide a sun’s worth of heat and light. He does, however think it would be incredibly cool if it did happen, “a huge boon to astronomy,” and a great reason for everyone to go star-gazing since Betelgeuse can be seen from nearly every part of the Earth except for the South Pole. 

2012: is there any reason to fear the end of the world?

One of those, the Long Count calendar, began in 3114BC and is believed to end on the winter solstice of Dec 21, 2012 – although the precise date has been the subject of debate among Mayan scholars.
The expiration of the Long Count cycle has given birth to a burgeoning apocalyptic 2012 movement that holds that the culmination of the cycle will mark the end of the world.
Advocates of this doomsday scenario cite increased solar sunspot activity and polar realignments as indications that Earth is heading for catastrophe next year.

Some New Age groups take a less extreme approach, instead contending that the expiration of the Long Count cycle will correspond to a global "consciousness shift" and spiritual "rebirth" for mankind.
But the prophecies are news to the modern Maya of Guatemala and Mexico who use a different calendar system and are scornful of what they see as a sensational Western hijacking of their culture and traditions.

George Lucas says world will end in 2012

Seth Rogen, a comedian and actor, said that he was left speechless by a recent conversation in which George Lucas, the producer of Star Wars and other Hollywood hits, told him of his belief that the world would end in 2012.


Betelgeuse to Explode in 2012? Create Second Sun? Nope!

In a bit of news from the, "technological innovation is not a calendar" department, reporting from claims that scientists believe the star Betelgeuse is on the route to a fiery oblivion before 2012.
That's accurate in the sense that Betelgeuse, the tenth brightest star in terms of apparent magnitude--the brightest stars one can see from earth—is indeed going to transform from a red supergiant into a supernova.
Second Sun May Appear in Sky by 2012!
According to an article in the 23 Jan edition of the UK Telegraph,

"The Earth could find itself with a 'second sun' for a period of weeks later this year when one of the night sky's most luminous stars explodes, scientists have claimed."

"Betelgeuse, which is part of the Orion constellation 640 light years away from Earth, is a red supergiant, meaning that it is nearing the end of its life and is due to explode. When it does do, it will burn so brightly that the earth will appear to have two suns in the sky"
