In 1908, there was a new development regarding the mysterious explosion in the Tunguska region in Siberia. Russian scientists who have made a new prediction about this event, which has been discussed for years and whose mystery cannot be illuminated, explained that the reason for the explosion may be an asteroid entering the atmosphere.
Numerous disasters have occurred throughout history. These disasters sometimes appeared as earthquakes that destroyed cities and sometimes as huge tsunamis. However, there are some disasters that mystery has not been solved even today. There was a new development regarding one of these mysterious events.
112 years ago, when the calendars showed June 30, 1908, Russia hosted one of the biggest explosions in history. The explosion in the Tunguska region of Siberia was felt even from a distance of about 1,000 kilometers, and all the trees in the area of at least 2,000 square kilometers were destroyed. This explosion was also recorded by observatories around the world. However, the source of the explosion had not been identified.
There are different claims about this mysterious incident. Some of these claims showed that this explosion was equivalent to the explosion of a dynamite mass of 40-50 megatons. This explosion power was the same as the world’s largest hydrogen bomb. Other claims revealed that this explosion was 10-15 megatons in power. It is not known when the 100-year discussion will end, but scientists are now facing a new claim.
According to estimates, the cause of this explosion may be asteroid.
New explanations made by Russian scientists reveal that the reason for this explosion may be an asteroid. According to experts, an asteroid made of iron went into a great fast atmosphere and went through a height of 10 to 15 thousand kilometers. This transition caused the Tunguska Incident to happen.
Scientists who have prepared an article for a magazine called “Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society” say that the asteroid entering the atmosphere has a diameter of 100 to 200 meters and a speed of 20 kilometers per second. However, it should be clearly stated that all these statements have not gone beyond an estimate and are not enough to illuminate the Tunguska Incident.
