NBC News — Hundreds of pilgrims are expected to visit the peak of a mountain in the French Pyrenees on December 21st. That's because they believe it'll be the only place to escape the end of the world.
According to a 2010 online rumor, the mountain near the border between France and Andorra is the hiding place of an alien spaceship. The rumor says that the Mayan calendar predicts that the world will end on the 21st and the only place to safely escape the turmoil is on the mountain. Scientists have repeatedly debunked the Mayan calendar rumor.
