Halley's Comet

In 1910, a rumor spread across Europe and America that Halley’s Comet contained a gas "that would impregnate the atmosphere and possibly snuff out all life on the planet" the next time it passed over the Earth. Halley’s Comet is visible from Earth every 75-76 years and its harmless presence over our skies has been observed and recorded by ancient cultures throughout time.
