Eighty years ago, on the night of Oct. 30, 1938, millions of Americans believed that Earth was being invaded by Martians. It was the result of a radio show produced on CBS by the Mercury Theatre Players, under the direction of Orson Welles. How did they manage to convince so many people of the unthinkable? And what was it like to be caught in the frenzy of terror that many experienced that night?
