Ahead of the so-called doomsday on 28 September, linked with the popular blood moon prophecy, a lot has been said and written about how the world will end. While some are of the opinion that asteroids and mega earthquakes will wipe out the world, others feel that it will start with a massive alien invasion.
But before the fateful date arrives, everyone apparently is doing his bit to at least re-create all the things that could happen on the day. And recently, a film called "51 Degrees North" was shown for the first time at a VIP screening in London's Science Museum as part of World Asteroid Day.
Queen guitarist and astrophysicist Dr Brian May headed a panel of experts who introduced the movie length docu-drama. The movie includes interviews with experts alongside the fictional story of an asteroid strike on earth.
As far as the story is concerned, it revolves around German blogger Damon Miller, living in London, who becomes obsessed with a documentary he is making about "near Earth" asteroids, before his apparent descent into madness with the topic. Check out the trailer below.
According to May, "51 Degrees North" is "a very different kind of disaster movie with no Bruce Willis to save life on Earth from extinction."
"This film is about what could happen to the human race and asteroid day came out of this film," he said. "But it is not all depressing and there is a glimmer of hope that these consequences could be avoided and the film could be rewritten if we had more knowledge."
"This is what asteroid day is about. Everyone needs to work together to prevent what could happen to the human race," he said.
While the movie was indeed on World Asteroid Day, could this be the real fate of London on 28 September? Let us know in the comments sections below.
