Meet the man behind the Alberta falling-satellite hoax
Sebastian Salazar will openly admit he’s no Orson Welles, but for one night, the aspiring filmmaker offered his very best impression.
Salazar was the source of the social-media hoax on Friday night that claimed a NASA satellite that had been falling to earth had crashed into a farmer’s field near Okotoks, Alta., about 40 kilometres south of Calgary.
“If it worked for Orson Welles in 1938, I wanted to see if it worked on Twitter in 2011,” he said. (Photo: NASA Handout)
