Let me share with you some interesting links about the Tunguska Explosion:
It is really impressive even now almost a century ago to recall such an unusual natural event occured in Siberia, the mother land of Rasputin.
Can that early experience be related with the extraordinary personal psychic powers of this man?

There are biographers of Rasputin that even mention the possibility that he visited the area of Tunguska in his childhood and that he received his revelation of the Virgin Mary in the surrounded woods of that isolated region.

from what i understand, Rasputin was casterated as the final act of contempt by the conspirators, because of his alleged degenerate sexual tastes performed with the Russian Royalty.
Mark 16:18 - New King James Version (NKJV)
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover
The Saint Who Sinned Pg 11
By BRIAN MOYNAHAN
He was at risk himself, and he knew it. "Do you know that I shall soon die in terrible pain?" he said, or so the French ambassador reported. "But what can I do? God has sent me to save our dear sovereign and Holy Russia. Despite my terrible sins I am a Christ in miniature."
From Rasputin, the Monk Who Brought Down a Dynasty
by Jennifer Brainard :
Rasputin appears to have had some premonitions of his death. There are reports that when the Tsar departed for the front after being home for a brief time, he, as usual, asked for the monk's blessing. Rasputin is reported to have said, "This time it is you who must bless me." He seems to have put his affairs in order. There is also a letter from Rasputin in which he predicts disaster for Russia and for himself: ".My hour will soon come. I have no fear but you must know that the hour will be bitter. I will suffer a great martyrdom. I will forgive my torturers and will inherit the kingdom." And in an interview on the day of his death, he told an acquaintance "Little mother, I feel my end is near. They'll kill me and then the throne won't last 3 months."
According to Greg King's 1996 book The Man Who Killed Rasputin:
a previous attempt on Rasputin's life had been made and had failed: Rasputin was visiting his wife and children in his hometown, Pokrovskoye, along the Tura River, in Siberia.
On June 29, 1914, he had either just received a telegram or was just exiting church, when he was attacked suddenly by Khionia Guseva, a former prostitute who had become a disciple of the monk Iliodor, once a friend of Rasputin's but now absolutely disgusted with his behaviour and disrespectful talk about the royal family. Iliodor had appealed to women who had been harmed by Rasputin, and together they formed a survivors' support group.
Guseva thrust a knife into Rasputin's abdomen, and his entrails hung out of what seemed like a mortal wound. Convinced of her success, Guseva supposedly screamed, "I have killed the antichrist!"
from a The Death of Grigory Rasputin
Written by Josh Harding :
After drinking a couple of glasses, he showed no signs of having been poisoned. After a while, he may have started feeling something because he asked for tea. Then stood, walked around the room, then asked Felix to play the guitar and sing. For two hours this "nightmare" continued.
When Felix(Yussupov) checked in with is co-conspirators next, he was pale. He said that Rasputin had eaten and drank the poisoned food and still nothing had happened. When he again returned to his guest, the only signs of the poison affecting him was that he was burping and had some excessive salivation. Nerves were beginning to give way. Felix decided to end it. He took a revolver and while Rasputin was looking at a fancy cross, shot him in the back. Rasputin gave a bestial cry and fell to the floor.
Dimitry(Romanov) and the doctor allegedly went for the car and to destroy Rasputin's coat and boots (they were not destroyed). In the meantime, Felix wanted to see Rasputin again, so he went and took another look. The body was still warm with small drops of blood coming from the wound. He lifted the body by the shirt and shook it and dropped it again to the floor. He then noticed that the left eye started to open, then the right eye. Suddenly the Rasputin leapt from the floor with a "devil's look" in his eyes and a wild cry and attacked Felix. Felix struggled for a moment and broke free. Rasputin fell again to the floor.
The prince ran, calling for the revolver again. When they returned, Rasputin was crawling up the stairs. He made it out and began to run through the snow near the fence crying, "Felix, Felix…I'll tell everything to the tsarina!" In a panic, Purishkevich missed twice with the revolver, then biting himself on the wrist to make himself concentrate, shot Rasputin in the back. Then again in the head. Rasputin fell, holding his head.
Felix began to beat Rasputin with a rubber truncheon. Finally Purishkevich had him pulled off the body. They took the body back into the house and discovered that Rasputin was still alive. He wheezed with each breath and was able to look at them through one eye. Finally Dimitry and the doctor returned. The body was wrapped in a cloth and taken by car to the Niva river and dumped in.
From The Murder of Rasputin
By Jennifer Rosenberg,
When they pulled him out, they found Rasputin's hands were frozen in a raised position, making everyone believe that he had still been alive under the water and had tried to untie the rope around his hands.
Rasputin's body was taken by car to the Academy of Military Medicine where an autopsy was conducted.
