Members of the scientific expedition of the Siberian state
foundation Tunguska Space Phenomenon say they have managed to
uncover blocks of an extraterrestrial technical device. The
space body, which was later called the Tunguska meteorite, fell down
on Earth on June 30th 1908, 65 kilometers off the
Vanavara settlement, the Evenkiya republic.
first expedition to study the Tunguska meteorite was
organized in 1927. Professor Leonid Kulik headed the mission.
However, explorers have never managed to discover any fragments of
the celestial body.
The press service of the Evenkiya republic administration reported
the expedition worked in the western part of the region in the
summer of the current year. The mission's itinerary was based on the
results of the space footage analysis. Explorers believe they have
discovered blocks of an extraterrestrial technical device,
which crashed down on Earth on June 30th, 1908. In
addition, expedition members found the so-called "deer" - the
stone, which Tunguska eyewitnesses repeatedly mentioned in
their stories. Explorers delivered a 50-kilogram piece of the stone
to the city of Krasnoyarsk to be studied and analyzed.
It is generally believed a giant ball of fire flew above
Central Siberia before the Tunguska meteorite blast.
Scientists have analyzed hundreds of eyewitnesses' stories and
revealed a still inexplicable detail. Thunder-like sounds and
incredible light effects were seen not only during and after the
bolide flight, but also before it. Several eyewitnesses, including a
political exile (a highly-educated individual), mentioned that in
their stories. It is very hard to explain it with subjective
mistakes, because such affirmations reiterate independently.
Observers were located tens of kilometers far from the area of the
fall. A ballistic wave could not create such a sound: it could
remain behind the bolide, but it could never outdistance it. The
only real explanation can be linked with powerful electromagnetic
phenomena, albeit scientists have not developed a complete analysis
of the issue from this point of view.
Another circumstance is tied with the direction of the body's
movement. On the ground of eyewitnesses' testimonies collected in
the 1920s and 1930s, scientists concluded the bolide had flown
northwards from the south. The analysis of the woods destruction,
though, testified to the westwards movement of the body from the
east. It is noteworthy it is the direction that can be traced in
The discrepancy is evident. A lot of scientists have tried to
explain the mysterious phenomenon using various approaches. It was
particularly said several bolides had flown above the Siberian woods
in 1908. This point of view seems to be rather unfounded - no
eyewitness could see several bolides in one day. Another theory
provoked a discussion in the scientific world, when professor F.
Zigel proposed the meteorite maneuvered in the Earth's
atmosphere. It would be possible to discuss the theory only if
the Tunguska meteorite was a man-caused catastrophe. The
meteorite flight culminated in the powerful blast up to 40 Mt of
