comment Most interesting mathematics mistake?
The story was recounted by Kazimierz Kuratowski in his ``A half century of Polish mathematics." Of course neither Suslin nor his advisor Lusin were Polish, but Waclaw Sierpinski, a Polish mathematician who was interned in Russia at that time, witnessed the conversation between Suslin and Lusin in which the student communicated the discovery to the professor.
