DNews is a show about the science of everyday life and they post new videos three times a day, every weekday. Yesterday, they posted their Top 5 Science Stories of 2012! In the video, the host Trace counts down the biggest stories in a year full of amazing scientific advancements and achievements.

One of the top science stories of the year was the Mayan Apocalypse…or shall I say non-story of the year. There was so much build up to this “end of the world” event, with people stocking up of food & supplies, others climbing mountains or heading underground where they thought they’d be safe from whatever world-ending events they believed would unfold.

Check out the other top stories and Trace’s funny take on each of them in the video below.
