19 Years to a Retraction. Bonus Midnight Camera Footage Included.
This Retraction Watch post details the longest correction/retraction saga I've heard of yet. A 1994 paper in Nature has finally been pulled back, after years and years of wrangling. And by "wrangling" I mean multiple attempted repeats, blinded samples, fraught exchanges over scientific ethics with one of the most high-profile professors in the Czech Republic and hidden camera footage from the lab freezer. Yep, it got to that point - midnight break-ins to alter the stored samples. Read the post for more; it's really something.
