Infographic of the Day: A Timeline of When the World Ended

Jeff Fletcher gathered the predictions about the end of mankind and placed them on one timeline.

Engineer and product developer from South Africa Jeff Fletcher published a project A Timeline of When the World Ended, where he gathered all dates when the world was supposed to have ended on one chart.

Every dot on the map stands for one end of the world. The color and symbols describe, who predicted it: the scientists, the astrologists, representatives of religion or mentally ill people. If you hover over the dot, you see a pop-up window with short information about every prediction.

"I once found this article, which gives a list of when the world was predicted to end. I figured it would be a nice thing to see on an actual timeline", — the author said.
