North Korea Claims to Have Landed First Man on the Sun

Posted on March 1, 2014

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.

What are your thoughts about this?

    It was a satirical piece written in Waterford Whispers News.  Follow the source back and see for yourselves.  Here’s their disclaimer: “Waterford Whispers News is a fabricated satirical newspaper and comedy website published by Waterford Whispers News.”


    Surely they did !! Great North Korea !!
    Hung Il Dong 17 years old had a good dream !!
    Will he wake up???

    What part of “satire” are you folks not understanding?  It’s a fake news item, produced on a comedy news site.  Click the source link, then click the source link on the next one and it will take you to the original article.  One other site picked it up thinking it was real, then this site picked it up from them and is also claiming it’s real.  It isn’t.

    Darned smart of those North Koreans to do it at night when other countries can’t see it happening and when it’s cool.  I would never have thought of that!

    We’ll that’s how accurate their rockets are. They intended to land in the moon but ended up in the sun. Too embarrass to admit the navigational errors that they just changed the story of the supposed mission.

    Anyway it’s probably easy to send a man to the sun, but not the same to bring him back alive. :)

    Patrick B Steg I’m afraid, this “source” is not a satirical site at all. In fact they are a very serious and credible computer news site.

    SaschaSchroeder Patrick B Steg  http://waterfordwhispersnews.com/2014/01/21/north-korea-lands-first-ever-man-on-the-sun-confirms-central-news-agency/ is a “serious and credible” news site?  On what planet?  Not this one, that’s for sure.  Here’s the original source, since you seem incapable of using the source link above and looking at where that site got the story from.
    Oh, and if you STILL think this is a real story I have a bridge you might be interested in.

    MileySpears Sorry Miley, but the North Koreans did send a man to the sun. They sent a woman to Mercury.

    He went there in only four hours. That’s why we didn’t do it before… It’s too easy, we only take the long missions. We leave the ‘Day Trips’ to the less develop country’s. If their Air Conditioners were better he wouldn’t have had to go at night. Plus…Plus…We brought back ‘Moon Rocks’! I’ll bet ‘The Dong didn’t bring back anything.
