Did he/she perpetuate the scrund in a song?

Singer: H? A? M? Famous?

Us: the general public? A set group? Singer's fans?

The scrund: about science? Singing?

Is a song she sings relevant? If so: the lyrics? The music? Does she portray something scientific incorrectly? Relevant what field of science?

Was it about: science in general? Biology? Chemistry? Physics? Astronomy? Geology? Mathematics? Social science?

The decade: 2010s? 2000s? 1990s? 1980s? 1970s? 1960s? 1950s? Earlier?

Could you have easily overcome this scrund by doing some quick research?

Is a song she sings relevant? No. If so: the lyrics? The music? Does she portray something scientific incorrectly? No, with a small ish. Relevant what field of science? Yes.

Was it about: science in general? Biology? Chemistry? Physics? Astronomy? This. Geology? Mathematics? Social science?

The decade: 2010s? 2000s? 1990s? 1980s? 1970s? 1960s? 1950s? '50s, though his group is still around in various guises. Earlier?

Could you have easily overcome this scrund by doing some quick research? Yes. In fact, he may have been aware of the scrund -- he did not originate it, but popularized it.

Does the doppler effect have anything to do with it? Red shift? Frequency? Speed of the comet? Occurrence of the comet? Light years?

Was the scrund that Halley's Comet was spelt with one "l" like "Haley"? Or that it should be pronounced "Hail-ey", to rhyme with daily?

Halley is properly pronounced to rhyme with "valley," though Halley himself is thought to have pronounced it to rhyme with "Molly." The alternate pronunciation of "Hailey" was around before Bill Haley's time, but his inspiration to use it as the name of his band spread it throughout the United States, and it is still the most common version today.
