The summer of 1908 witnessed the arrival of an unknown space body and an explosion over the Tunguska forest in Central Siberia that could have flattened any major city on Earth. The Tunguska explosion has been widely publicized for decades, yet both the public and the scientific community still seem unaware of the true contents of this amazing puzzle. The key publications are in Russian, so language has been a barrier to understanding the evidence of what took place. Most people think that the Tunguska event was explained 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 remains an enigma in its second century of existence as perplexing as it has been throughout the past century.
The Tunguska Mystery is the first truly comprehensive and popular exposition of this baffling enigma written specially for Western readers. Also, it is the only book written in the English language on Tunguska studies in the former Soviet Union and new independent states that is entirely based on firsthand accounts of serious researchers directly engaged in these studies.
The book’s language is simple, The Tunguska Mystery is meant not only for specialists, but first of all for any reader who is interested in the fascinating mysteries of the world we live in. As a reader noted on Amazon.com, the book is “very well written. The illustrations and photographs help the reader to understand the great importance of this study. I found this book to be a fine addition to anyone’s library. Who does not enjoy a good mystery… a true scientific mystery which may help us someday to protect our Earth from future Tunguska events?! I wish to add that it was very enjoyable from beginning to end, with a touch of humor and many interesting facts!”
What has been discovered by Russian scientists in recent decades is both astounding and reliable, even if raising someone’s eyebrows. Perhaps, Vladimir Rubtsov’s idea about an aerospace combat between two extraterrestrial spaceships that could happen in 1908 over Central Siberia is just a guess… But at least, after reading The Tunguska Mystery it becomes evident that the final solution of this enigma will be very unusual and far exceeding the bounds of conventional theories.
