The purpose of the book is a dual one: to detail the nature and results of Tunguska investigations in the former USSR and present-day CIS, and to destroy two long-standing myths still held in the West. The first concerns alleged “final solutions” that have ostensibly been found in Russia or elsewhere. The second concerns the mistaken belief that there has been little or no progress in understanding the nature of the Tunguska phenomenon. All this is treated by the author in a scholarly and responsible manner. Although the book does present certain unusual findings of Russian and Ukrainian scholars, it is important to stress that this is not a sensational book; it is, rather, a serious exposition of the results of rational investigations into a difficult scientific problem. We are demonstrating the true complexity of the problem that is now entering its second century of existence. Simple meteoritic models cannot explain all the characteristics of this complicated event, and therefore certain so-called “unconventional hypotheses” about the nature of the Tunguska explosion are to be considered as well.

On 30 June 1908 a mysterious fireball exploded in the Siberian sky and flattened 2,000 square kilometres of the remote Tunguska forest. As no crater and no material from outer space were ever found, a meteorite could not have caused the Tunguska explosion. So what did? This 'grand dame of science mysteries' soon turns 100 but continues to seduce scientists and charlatans alike, all hoping to explain what caused the explosion. The scientists' suspects include a comet, an asteroid, a mini black hole, a rock of antimatter, a mirror matter asteroid, and a methane gas blast from below. X-files-type explanations include an alien spacecraft, a laser beam fired by extraterrestrials in an attempt to communicate with the earthlings, and an early experiment in nuclear physics which got out of hand. Numerous websites, conspiracy theories and sensational TV documentaries on the Fireball abound. In a fast-moving and non-technical narrative The Tunguska Fireball discusses all theories and then analyses the evidence to point an accusing finger at a prime suspect.

The pictures of the devastated cities demonstrated the sheer strength of such weapons, and the impact was alarming enough to lead to efforts not only to control the proliferation of such weapons but to denuclearize altogether. It was hard for people to comprehend the power behind nuclear weapons in 1945, but that was due in great measure to the fact that most people were unfamiliar with the Tunguska event, which took place over 35 years earlier in a sparsely populated region of Siberia. On June 30, 1908, an explosion with an epicenter near the Tunguska River flattened an area of about 2,000 square miles, destroying tens of millions of trees and killing countless numbers of wildlife. Miraculously, there were no recorded human casualties as a result of the since named Tunguska event, which generated the energy equivalent of 1,000 of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima. The shockwave alone would have measured 5.0 on the Richter scale. It goes without saying that had the Tunguska event happened in a major metropolitan area, it would've been one of the biggest catastrophes in history, but due to the isolated area and the turbulent affairs in Russia during the World Wars and the Bolshevik Revolution, the event was mostly ignored during the early 20th century, and it is still often overlooked today, even as scientists continue to study it in an attempt to explain what happened. Although conspiracy theories have been proffered (as with other mysterious events), it is widely believed today that the explosion was caused by an asteroid or a comet, but people still continue to debate certain aspects of the blast, and Tunguska is constantly cited as a reason it is necessary to identify and monitor objects in space near Earth. The Tunguska Event chronicles the history and mystery behind the massive explosion, including eyewitness accounts and theories over what caused it.

There are many mysteries in the world we live in. Some we know will eventually be solved, and some so inexplicable we doubt there will ever be an answer. The latter are the most fascinating and often the subject of controversy and discussion. The Bermuda Triangle is one such mystery. Many books have been written on the subject and many more theories have been put forward by people from all walks of life. Then along comes the official explanation which gives the scientific explanation and debunks all the mystery, which leaves us back where we started. There is definitely a mystery. Ships, aircraft, large and small boats, not to mention numerous people do not disappear without a reason! Same with UFOs Thousands of people have seen them, some have actually been on-board and a few have actually been abducted - so they say. The US Government has spent millions of dollars on debunking the reports by UFO aficionados and others, even professional pilots who have put their careers on the line to report corroborated sightings. Long before UFOs became a universal topic there was the incident at Tunguska. Nobody, not even scientists and Government officials can refute the evidence that a cataclysmic explosion occurred in a very remote area of Siberia in Russia, or more precisely Tunguska, in 1908. And just like the Bermuda Triangle there have been many "unofficial" theories as to what actually happened in June 1908. There have been many more mysteries but the three I have mentioned are the most endearing and well known. The most amazing thing about these mysteries is that there have been eye witnesses! In the case of the Tunguska explosion, the eye witness was of the thing that caused it, not the actual explosion which killed every living thing within 20 Km. An eye witness in Afghanistan saw a very large object travelling in the direction of Siberia. Moving quite fast the object was seen to change direction! The official explanation for the explosion was that it was caused by a meteor entering the Earth's atmosphere and exploding 7 Km above the surface. Oh really! Meteors leave a large crater when they crash to Earth. There is no crater at Tunguska! Meteors are not controlled and do not change direction in flight! The Bermuda Triangle - so called, also has eye witnesses who have seen boats vaporised in a green fog. The area known as the Bermuda Triangle is just one of several locations around the world where strange disappearances occur, and it is no coincidence that the locations of these so called "devil's graveyards" are absolutely symmetrical. That is five in the northern hemisphere at 36 north latitude separated from each other by 72 intervals, and five in the southern hemisphere at 36 south latitude separated from each other by 72 intervals. The scientific view of this extremely interesting fact is that it is a result of the Earth's magnetism! Magnetic vortices are set up at the above locations, causing catastrophic effects to ships and aircraft. The scientists are probably correct, but they do not mention that the magnetic vortices are not necessarily a natural phenomena! To add more mystery to the already inexplicable, I believe that the mysteries I have mentioned are connected! The book "Tunguska" explores the link between the Bermuda Triangle and other areas where strange disappearances occur, the phenomena generally known as UFOs and the explosion at Tunguska in 1908 in a fictional way!"

The Tungus Event Or The Great Siberian Meteorite

This popular science book shares the fascination of the Tungus Event, a major mystery of the 20th century, in a factual and informed way. It provides "on-the-ground" descriptions of the site and explains the findings and the puzzlement of international scientists who have investigated it over the decades. After a brief and readable overview of comets, meteors, the sun and the solar system, the author ponders the range of possible explanations for the "great Siberian meteorite." The research is up to date, factual and scientific. While making no absurd claims to solving the puzzle, the author studies some intriguing clues in NASA's orbit diagrams for Comet Encke, and he is bold in discussing the possible causes of what was the greatest natural explosion in recorded history. As he points out, [Hypotheses] include rogue asteroids, mini black holes and even alien intervention....These explanations are not entirely equal to the facts. In the unique case of the Tunguska event, there was wholesale destruction to the mighty taiga woodlands but none of the debris that one would expect should exist from the body itself. Evidence like a strewn field of meteorite debris or meteoric dust on the trees and ground were never found, nor were any craters, in the area beneath the site of the fireball nor anywhere along the path it took. There are no craters because the Tunguska Cosmic Body (TCB) did not hit the ground. Atmospheric anomalies prior to the dramatic appearance of the fiery body puzzlingly occurred for several days, adding to the enigma. There are just a handful of English-language books on this subject. The most recent, The Tunguska Mystery, by the Russian Rubstov (Astronomers Universe, Springer Science 2009) is authoritative but highly technical and hard going for the general reader. Mr. Engledew instead tells the story in a balanced and engaging style.

What happened to the Tunguska forest? Scientists have been searching for answers since it happened over 100 years ago! Could the answers lay in the paranormal? There was a massive explosion on the 30th June 1908. Flattening 2,000 square kilometres of Siberian forest, the exact cause of the incredible blast is still unknown. Some have suggested that the event resulted from a meteor slamming into the Earth's surface. But no impact crater has ever been found. Other people have suggested that the meteor imploded in the sky above the forest. To this day, it is still the largest recorded impact event to strike the Earth. To this day, the explosion is still something of a mystery. Thousands of scientific papers have attempted to get to the bottom of exactly what happened that day. With a force comparable to a nuclear blast, the destructive nature of the event is astounding. On the day, 80 million trees were knocked down, and the sound was heard across the continent. In the days afterwards, the night skies were lit up with strange lights. It was just the start of the strange series of events that would add a paranormal, perhaps even extra-terrestrial dimension to the cataclysmic event. Explosions such as these have the power to end all life on the planet. There's little that can be done when giant meteors rain down from above. The Tunguska Event demonstrates just how powerful such events can be but also shows us what might happen if we survive. Aside from the existential threat, the fallout from the blast has left a lasting impact not just on mainstream science, but on those who dig deeper below the surface. In this book, we will examine the explosion itself and the aftereffects that have defied explanation. Trying to figure out what caused the Tunguska Event is one thing, attempting to understand how this explosion affected us as a planet is another matter entirely. Could it be that the answers lay elsewhere... Scroll back up and grab your copy today!

The Tunguska Event is the largest cosmic calamity caused by collision of an interplanetary object with the Earth that happened in the XX century and it has been extensively studied over fifty years. It began when at 07h 14m 28s local time on the 30 th June 1908 an enormous fireball appeared above Central Siberia (60o 55' 04".6 N, 101o 56' 55".6 E) moving from south-east to north-west. This bolide was accompanied by intensive sonic and optical phenomena culminating in a huge explosion. A huge flash set fire to the forest, and a ballistic wave of this giant explosion devastated the Siberian taiga over an area of about 2150 square km. Eyewitness reports quoted here describe this phenomenon as it looked to the local people over a vast area of the Earth, starting from near the epicentre in Central Siberia across Western Europe. There is also an extended resume of the scientific achievements that many expeditions contributed to the modern understanding how the interplanetary environment interacts with our Earth. Significant effort of Russian scientist Leonid A. Kulik (1883-1942) was in focus in this booklet. This scientist and adventurer devoted to the Tunguska event his entire enthusiasm and many years of hard work in organising and attending numerous expeditions. Events which happened in the Siberian taiga in 1908 have been covered up so as to present a mythical mystery, over-grown by a number of exotic and fantastic hypotheses. For this reason this book will pay attention to original documents and direct witness reports which were necessary to make present publication credible and consistent. These expeditions and their findings are summarised in this booklet.

During the early morning of June 30, 1908, a powerful explosion is reported in a remote location near the Tunguska River in Siberia, Russia. Miles away, windows break, people are knocked off their feet, and for weeks, skies are aglow. It comes to be known as the Tunguska Event, and many wonder whether the blast is related to a volcano, meteorite, or comet-or even from a secret experiment gone awry. Unfortunately, none of the theories is unanimously accepted.In the city of Bern, a scientist begins investigating the glowing mystery. He begins inquiring about the strange light in the skies over Europe and western Russia, but finds himself left with more questions than answers. As theories circulate that the explosion was most likely caused from a meteorite, the scientist lets his great mind run wild-a decision that brings him to an exciting epiphany that changes everything and reveals his identity to the world.Symbiosis 1908 is the intriguing story of what really could have happened on June 30, 1908, with subtle and unforeseen consequences for humanity.
