1908 - Tunguska Event 1908, The mysterious destructive meteorite

History Nov 3, 2020

This is a horrible story whose mystery is still intact, The Tunguska Event.

Story Of Tunguska event

June 30 was a historic day. The time may not be the same everywhere in Russia, which stretches 8,980 kilometers from east to west, but 17 minutes have passed since midnight according to the universal time set by Zare. This time the capital was actually Moscow. It was about seven-thirty in the morning in the Tunguska region, several kilometers east. Nothing extraordinary had happened in the snow-covered desert for hundreds of years. But years later, the long ladder turned to midnight.

The calm natural environment suddenly roared with tremendous shocks. Spread over hundreds of kilometers, not only the territory of Siberia but the whole earth was shaken.

The wind began to blow all around and the light spread far and wide in the black sky. In London, as in Moscow, it was midnight.

Even the sooty sky of London was so bright that the tiny letters of “The Times” newspaper could be clearly read!

In the strange natural dawn in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, photographers took clear pictures without using a flashgun!

The seismometers, located 5,200 kilometers from Siberia, suddenly shook. Researchers were puzzled by the same question: What was the catastrophe that shook the globe?

After the Event

Over the years, researchers have struggled to find a definitive answer to a question that has not been uncovered.

Of course, the short conclusion after a short search was that a possible comet carrying a cataclysmic message from the universe struck north of the village of Vanavara in Tunguska, Siberia!

About six and a half kilometers above the ground, it exploded with the force of hundreds of atomic bombs.

The details of what really happened, however, created a permanent puzzle for scientists in Russia and around the world. Because the wandering race was none other than the Tungus shepherds as eyewitnesses to the celestial collision that took place in Tunguska.

After World War I, the Soviet Academy of Sciences was established in Russia with the end of Tsarist rule and the beginning of Communism.

Leonid Kulik, the first scientist-miner to arrive at the scene to unravel Tungska’s mystery, arrived with his research team on behalf of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

All the trees like pine and cedar, which were surrounded for about 20 kilometers, fell in the same direction. The peak of all was towards South-East i.e. Vanavara.

As Kulik’s detachment advanced towards the center of the disaster, the number of uprooted trees increased. The real strange thing was that many of the trees in the center of the explosion were inexplicably present!

If an asteroid collision is responsible for the cataclysm of the cataclysm, then there must be a large pit at the site of the collision. In addition, the presence of metals such as iron, nickel, and iridium as remnants of a comet (or meteorite) must have been present, but not a single piece of evidence has been found to prove the existence of an asteroid.

Scientific teams and his Arguments

After Kulik’s first trip, several Russian scientific teams visited the site of the blast, but they found nothing but arguments.

One argument he argued was that the earth revolving around the sun passes between the space debris of various comets in June and November each year. Meanwhile, some of them pull the debris towards themselves by gravity.

The eruption in Tungska also took place in June, so the possibility that the Earth has attracted a large piece of debris cannot be ruled out.

Another possibility is that the comet, instead of being transformed into a hydrogen bomb, would have been released into the air due to the enormous pressure of the atmosphere and would have been destroyed by a gradual burst before reaching Earth.
