How a Thanksgiving Day prank ruffled feathers at NASA Mission Control (Eric Berger)
(NASA)
The phone call from the "Mountain" to Mission Control in Houston came at just about the worst possible time. It was the wee hours of Thanksgiving morning in 1991. Up in space, the crew members on board space shuttle Atlantis were sleeping. Now all of a sudden, Lead Flight Director Milt Heflin faced a crisis.
WHY THIS MATTERS: Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day 2020. This site prank seems to somehow fit the occasion. For yourselves and your loved ones, I hope you have things to be thankful for and strength for what you may be grieving. -Cynthia Wisehart

This proposed policy has been widely and incorrectly reported, according to Ticketmaster.
WHY THIS MATTERS: This started with an article in Billboard on Ticketmaster's plans for the return to live music. It's worth reading that article. Snopes' followup debunks some of the undisciplined reporting that followed in other outlets. -Cynthia Wisehart
