Sci-Fi Museum: New Exhibit - H.G. Wells War of the Worlds
Frank: In 1938, Orson Welles broadcast "War of the Worlds", a radio drama about aliens from Mars invading Earth. 
Ernest: The radio drama was presented as a series of fake news reports about devastation caused by the invading aliens. 
Frank: Many listeners tuned in to the program mid-broadcast and thought the news reports were real. Widespread panic ensued! 
Boy: Wow! Orson Welles caused all that panic with a radio program...
Boy: Just imagine what he could've done with Twitter!
