If A Tree Falls In The Forest....
Russia is a country full of enigmas. Did all of the Romanovs get assassinated after the Russian Revolution of 1917? Maybe. Did the Russians really win the Cold War? Possibly. Does Putin have a game plan to destroy the current U.S. regime from within? Stay tuned....But one of the mysteries that I would like to highlight has been baffling the minds of the Russian people and the rest of the world for the past 110 years! The Tunguska Event (Explosion) has defied scientific explanation and logic for many researchers. On the surface, Tunguska Event looks like the typical meteor crash. However, once you peel the layers back and analyze all the evidence, this event is far from "ordinary." Here's a quick synopsis on how it went down:
On June 8, 1908 along the banks of the Tunguska River in Central Siberia (Russia), witnesses claimed that a huge fireball or meteor streaked across the sky that was allegedly as bright as the sun. According to first hand accounts, the fireball exploded over the area with the force equivalent to 10-15 megatons! Nearly 770 square miles of forest was immediately decimated and the force from the blast was felt up to 40 miles away. It caused a seismic quake that reached 5.0 on the Richter scale. Strange debris clouds from the explosion had even reached as far west as London and had illuminated the skies. Unfortunately, the blast area could not be properly investigated or examined by Russian officials because of the global turmoil caused by World War I and the Russian Revolution. The Tunguska site wasn't officially explored until 1927. The scientists who arrived there was expecting to find some kind of remnants of meteor fragments or a huge crater among the fallen trees. Surprisingly, they found no signs of either one. The lack of any tangible evidence from an extraterrestrial object left the scientists on the ground dumbfounded. Surely they were probably asking themselves, "What could have causes such a massive explosion if there wasn't any impact from a meteor or comet?" Atomic research didn't start officially start until the 1930s, so the use of any fission-based devices can be immediately ruled out. There have been many wacky theories on the causes of the explosion. They ranged from energy beams from UFOs, Tesla experiments gone wrong, and the ignition of underground natural gas pockets. As with all stories, there are always three sides: your side, their side, and the truth. Because I don't have access to a time machine right now, I'm going to try to offer a feasible theory on what really caused the Tunguska Event.
One of my all-time favorite TV shows was Fringe. For those who aren't familiar with the theme of the show, it delves into the cutting edges of science, technology and the paranormal. During the latter seasons, the writers focused on the battle of two parallel universes. Because the barrier between both worlds was extremely thin, it was easy for both sides to invade one another and cause all sorts of death and destruction. In the case of Tunguska, I believe that there was a parallel universe that was in the middle of a major conflict. Just like on the show Fringe, I believe that there was weakened barrier between our universe and the warring one that was conveniently located in the Tunguska area. One of the advanced thermonuclear weapons that they were using probably broke through the dimensional barrier and detonated in our universe causing the Tunguska Explosion that we know today. Could the Tunguska Event be the result of a extra-dimensional war that spilled over into our current universe? It's a strong possibility. As a matter of fact, it sounds much more believable than a phantom comet or flammable swamp gas.
