The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
To boost ratings and keep from closing, this 1835 American Newspaper started a series of article about creatures on the moon. The first told of an astronomer looking through the world's newest and biggest telescope. (Later they wrote that the telescope was 200 feet across and weighed 14,826 pounds). He saw rivers and a tropical jungle. The initial article left the reader there. Then followups filled in the fictional gaps. The articles were a sensation! Name the paper
The New York Sun. The first story appeared August 25,1835. Each issue in the series explained more and more about the Moon civilization and people loved it.
I had no winner. Seems everyone went to the Moon ... but none came back!
