Would you believe it if North Korea stated that it has landed the first man on the sun?

Well, believe it or not, they really said they did. They even called it the “greatest human achievement of our time.”

Hung Il Dong, 17, is reported to have been the first man to land on the sun, according to North Korean Central news.

It’s surprising enough to know that a human has managed to land on the sun, but what surprised me more is the report that the journey took him only four hours!


“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 Il Gong is a hero and deserves a hero’s welcome when he returns home later this evening,” the broadcaster said.

It was said that the journey was made possible by travelling in the cover of darkness, which protected him from the extreme heat of the sun.
