The summer of 1908 witnessed the arrival of an unknown space body and an ex plosion over the Tunguska forest in Central Siberia that could have flatten ed any major city on Earth. Most people think that the Tunguska event was e xplained long ago by scientists who study meteorites - that it was either a stony meteorite or the icy core of a comet. But these assumptions are not so tenable as their supporters would like to think. The Tunguska event rema ins an enigma in its second century of existence as perplexing as it has be en throughout the past century. And what Russian scientists have discovered in recent decades is both astounding and reliable, and will cause some eye brows to be raised. The Tunguska Mystery is the first truly comprehensive and popular expositio n of this century-long enigma written specially for western readers.
