Did a UFO deliberately crash into a meteor to save Earth 100 years ago?
That's what one Russian scientist is claiming. Dr. Yuri Labvin, president of the Tunguska Spatial Phenomenon Foundation, insists that an alien spacecraft sacrificed itself to prevent a gigantic meteor from slamming into the planet above Siberia on June 30, 1908.
The result was was the Tunguska event, a massive blast estimated at 15 megatons that downed 80 million trees over nearly 100 square miles. Eyewitnesses reported a bright light and a huge shock wave, but the area was so sparsely populated no one was killed.
Most scientists think the blast was caused by a meteorite exploding several miles above the surface. But Labvin thinks quartz slabs with strange markings found at the site are remnants of an alien control panel, which fell to the ground after the UFO slammed into the giant rock.
"We don't have any technologies that can print such kind of drawings on crystals,"
Labvin told the Macedonian International News Agency. "We also found ferrum silicate that can not be produced anywhere, except in space."

This idea and such is way old. Anytime there is something that can't be explained 100% there are a bunch of idiot nutcases who put forth the most foolish ideas about it being alien related. Makes us all look like complete fools to be honest.
Sorry to say, but this is yet another case of folks wanting to believe the improbable before being able to rule out the more than probable. That is the problem with this subject and this tripe is another example of it.
Aliens saved us, lol. Gimme a break. Crap like this feeds the ignorant minds of those that treat this subject like a religion, and base what they believe on nothing more than faith, desire and want.
And that's how I really feel, lol.
Don't know what caused it?.........aliens did it!!!!!!!....or course......I mean, yeah we would have to ignore the many more mundane things that it more than likely is in order to come to such ignorant conclusions, but that doesn't stop the internet community from further parroting this dribble year after year after year.....
I know we are supposed to consider the fantastical around here, but aren't you folks getting tired of being looked down upon, don't you wish that one day you could talk about this in public with joe blow and he wouldn't laugh out loud at you?
And it is people, like you, who keep such information from the rest of us who are the nutcases. Hell bent on holding the power, thinking that they are better than the rest of us.
