The War of the Worlds (1898) is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. It describes the experiences of a character who travels through London as the Earth is invaded by Martians.

In October 1938, Orson Welles directed a American radio adaption of Wells' novel. However, the realism of the radio broadcast, which tells of an alien invasion created widespread panic in the United States. The government, having already been aware of the alien existence of the Chimera, harshly responded to the broadcast and causing Orson Wells' career into ruins.
