MP3 of the Day

August 25, 2011 at 2:41 am

On this day in 1925 the New York Sun published a story about the discovery of life on the Moon. The discovery was supposedly made by Sir John Herschel, perhaps the best-known astronomer of his time. The article described a population of winged humanoids and fantastic animals living on the Moon. This, of course, was an elaborate hoax and some readers doubted it from the beginning. But many believed the article and the New York Sun’s circulation increased dramatically. The story was not discovered to be a hoax until several weeks after its publication and, even then, the newspaper did not issue a retraction. Today we have a demo version of the song Circles ‘Round the Moon by Nana Grizol.
