    NASA Responds About 2012 & The Mayan Calender




    Thanks for your email. The letter from NASA you refer to in the photos you attached does not mention climate change. From the look of the letter, it appears to be a response to a question you must have sent NASA.



    I think you can find answers to many of your factual questions on our website (www.nasa.gov) with just a little searching.


    In response to your question #3, NASA does not currently have any plans to return our astronauts to the Moon, but we are working toward manned flights to Mars in the 2030s.


    In response to question #9, there is nothing special about this year in terms of climate change. Many scientists have stated that the predictions of disasters on Earth based on the Mayan Calendar are completely false. They have no basis in fact.
