It must be most amazing achievement in the history of mankind. North Korea has claimed to have landed its first man on the sun. However, despite being a hoax, it is going viral on the net.
North Korea Becomes First Country to Land Man on Sun?
Weird Asia News reports that North Korean Central News has broadcasted that a 17-year-old boy, Hung Il Gong, has landed on the sun thus becoming the first person to have made the greatest ever feat. They even described it as the "greatest human achievement of our time".
"We are very delighted to announce a successful mission to put a man on the Sun. North Korea has beaten every other country in the world to the sun. Hung II Gong is a hero and deserves a hero's welcome when he returns home later this evening", Weird Asia News reported, according to India Today.
Apparently, the 17-year-old took only four hours to travel the distance to the sun and was expected to return on the same day. The supreme leader Kim Jong-un and his uncle were expected to greet him upon Hung's return from the scorching sun.
Hung reportedly traveled in darkness as it would protect him from extreme heat of the sun. He was supposed to bring back some sun sample for his uncle.
