Meteor? Alien craft collision? Alien craft explosion? Tesla experiment gone bad?

Just an amazing, amazing event.

Meteor or some other natural phenominon.

Not everythign "unexplained" is a conspiracy, supernatural or space men. The natural world is weird and intresting enough as it is.

microscopic black hole that imploded in the atmosphere. Really, no one knows. Probably a bolide that blew up before impact, is the most likely explanation.

Exactly how does a cheesy 80s hair band summon that kind of power? Does their amp go up to 11?

I think it was a comet. It never crashed, so it probably wasn't made of rock or metal. Comets are rather fragile.

If the comet disintegrated, it would suddenly have more surface area, therefore increasing the drag, and therefore increasing the energy output caused by the deceleration (that kinetic energy has to go somewhere). If it disintegrated enough it would explode like a bomb.

OMG, this guy needs to do more reading at other places other than arfcom.

Telsa was an 80's band for sure, but he's referring to Nikoly Tesla, who's electrical experiments were far ahead of his time. the .GOV confiscated alot of his hardware.

Tunguska, Siberia refers to a very large explosion that decimated over 2150 square kilometers of forest knocking down over 60 million trees.
June 1908 if memory serves

Additionally, the blast was estimated to be in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 megatons.

Look, this thinig was SOOOO sweet that it probably holds the record for the "pants crappingest explosion EVER!!!" right next to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The ONLY reason it isn't numero uno is because there were more than three people and a goat standing around for the two in Japan. Otherwise the Tunguska Explosion is definitely the most Guitar Shreddingest, Ninjatastic explosion EVER!!!!

IIRC it was a steam explosion caused by a comet. The comet(remember, it's a ball of ice) heated up on entering the earths atmospher to the point where it turned to steam and exploded. That's why there's no crater but massive damage above ground.


Nothing to see here, move along.

After looking at quite a few photos of that area, it looks to be one huge unspoiled wilderness.

Man Russia is a beautiful country. Too bad communism ruined the place.

I just don't know if I can buy the meteor theory. There would be some sort of crater. To me, the comet theory is the best explanation. That would explain why there was such a great deal of dust in the world's atmosphere before and after the incident. Perhaps the earth passed through a pack of comets.

One of the world's great unexplained mysteries.
