126: Roswell

On July 8, 1943, a headline in the Roswell Daily Record announced the discovery of a flying saucer near the New Mexico town.
Here are some things you may not know about the incident.
First, the incident happened following the crash of a balloon that was to be used to listen for sounds of Soviet nuclear tests. The U.S. government told the public is was nearly a weather balloon and the story faded away quickly.
