Back in June of 1908, in a region of Russia, a massive explosion occurred. T The damaged sustained from it was quite massive and left lasting effects. In Siberia in a region known as Tunguska, there were over 80 million trees flattened and destroyed.
Century Old Explosion Still a Mystery
Then there is the large crater that stretches out about five miles in diameter that has since become Lake Cheko. This blast was so huge it was felt not only in the Kremlin but the United States as well. It was also witnessed by portions of Britan and Italy that reported a large fireball in the sky.
So, what was the cause of this fireball and massive blasts? Well, or years it has been claimed that it was caused by a fallen meteorite. However, some recent research by a group of geologists in Russia debunks this claim. One of the main reasons why this has been debunked is that the blast along with the devastation that it left was about 200 times as massive as the atomic blasts in Hiroshima toward the end of World War II/ Yes, a meteorite can leave devastation in its path but most researchers tend to believe not of this magnitude. Another reason this has been debunked there was never any evidence of the meteorite, no fragments found, nothing proving it was ever there.
But for some, the fact that there are those in the scientific community that now believe the 1908 blast wasn’t caused by a meteorite doesn’t come as a huge surprise. For decades now there have been those who never quite believed this was true and had their theories as to what caused this massive blast. These theories included a volcano eruption, to an actual comet hitting down from the sky, which would certainly explain the fireball witnessed by different countries around that time. There is also a theory that aliens had attacked the earth and just happened to devastate that region most of all.
Whatever, the cause the Tunguska event remains a mystery that many scientists want to unravel. Including a team from Italy that have been studying the event for 21 years. Perhaps we may never actually know what caused the great blast of 1908, but the odds are that now we can say it wasn’t a meteor.
