4. Gravity Disappears -- BBC Radio 2 launched a stellar prank with news that at 9:47 a.m. on April 1, 1976, Pluto would pass behind Jupiter and that this alignment of the planets would result in a stronger gravitational pull from Jupiter, counteracting the Earth's own gravity. Listeners who timed a jump just at the right moment would be able to experience weightlessness, an astronomer in the report claimed. Hundreds of listeners immediately reported that they had been suspended in mid-air (along with their disbelief).
