15 Times The World Was Almost Completely Destroyed

 fmdjpzr1

These 15 times the world almost ended will shock you to the core, though they thankfully, but narrowly, missed the Earth’s core. Armageddon was almost a real-life event both in the olden days of yore and in the 21st century. These near apocalypses, whether due to mechanical failures, miscommunications, natural disasters, and barely avoided cosmic and nuclear events, almost ruined everyone’s day at some point in the history of the Earth.

Remember how the Mayan calendar supposedly indicated that the apocalypse was headed for us in 2012? Well, they weren’t that far off. As it turns out, a solar superstorm in the summer of 2012 narrowly missed blasting planet Earth. That would’ve sucked. And that’s just one of the many times humanity and all of Earth’s creatures have escaped extinction at the last second.

In fact, our planet is no stranger to “the end is near” concerns or real apocalypses, and it wasn’t just Y2K. The Black Plague possibly killed as many as 200 million human beings, and you don’t even want to hear the numbers when it comes to the Spanish Flu pandemic (that bad boy hit in the early 1900s). From comets, to volcanoes, to accidentally announcing nuclear war and setting off rockets, these are the times that the End of Days was almost just around the corner.
