On 30th June 1908, the day was not the same for the inhabitants of Tunguska, situated in Siberia! A weird explosion occurred, devastating everything in its passage causing many deaths and other colossal damages.
Several theories have been raised to explain the mysterious explosion of Tunguska. Different scientists, archaeologists, geologists, astrophysicists, etc…have researched immensely on this matter, until they reached conclusions which may perhaps make you puzzled! Some of the fascinating theories from them are as follows:
Let’s start with the nuclear bomb! Some theorists have argued that perhaps a nuclear bomb was tested there, and was exploded during the test itself. However, this theory has been contradicted because at that time, the Soviet did not have the capabilities to create a nuclear weapon. In fact, it was at the beginning of the 1940s that the Soviet started researching on nuclear bombs. Even in some places, radiation was recorded, however, many contradictions exist against the theory of nuclear bomb.
The theory that supports a UFO may had caused the huge explosion was from Alexei Zolotov, a Soviet scientist! This may be a joke for you, but as that time no proper solutions existed to support the cause of the explosion, people started to think any kind of possibilities, including the.
One of the theories to support the explosion of Tunguska is a meteorite perhaps was the origin of all. This theory may be the final one, as it is more genuine and all evidences gathered support it. Even the first scientist who investigated the Tunguska site at that time, Leonid Kulik, admitted no doubt the explosion was caused by a giant meteorite. Nevertheless, other school of thoughts have denied that a comet was its origin because no proof of a crater has been found after the impact! If a meteorite had crashed in Tunguska, a crater should have been formed, but no such crater was found! Due to the advanced development in the world of science from the 1960s, scientists claimed that no crater was necessary for such event as the meteorite had exploded in the air at a higher attitude before crashing on earth. As it exploded in the air itself, the energy released was so powerful that the landscapes were destroyed with fire. Even the inhabitants who survived at that time saw something huge and luminous coming from the sky and it blasted so fast and so loud!
Other anomalies had been recorded in Tunguska such as electronic devices stopped working, UFO apparitions, weird electronic noises, and strange lights sometimes appearing. As there is no evidence to debunk these anomalies, we cannot say anything on them. However, for the electronic devices to not functioning correctly, it is because the soil is magnetic in some areas there. The magnetic aspect in the soil also proves the theory of the meteorite.
Therefore, no such atomic bomb or UFO had destroyed Tunguska! Everything happened because of a meteorite. Mystery solved!
