I am not sure what you are upset about, I am telling you the military combined active denial system can use both sound and microwaves at distance. You will burn, most definitely feel like you are cooking in that little box on your counter. If you have never stood in front of it and taken the blast why are opening your mouth about it. The sound will also instantly disorient you, make you feel sick and dizzy and yes like your head is going to explode.
You think way to narrowly and in the box. We are talking about out of the box stuff, not your narrow understanding of your stereo.
Infra sound doesn't cause radiation, the area and bodies were positive for radiation
The area was made off limits to civilians due to it for long time
Official protocol report on the Tent from the Dyatlov group
Tent site is located on the North- eastern slope of mountain 1079 (Kholat Syakhl official term) meters at the mouth of river Auspiya. Tent site is located 300 meters from the top of the mountain 1079 with a slope of 30 °. Test site consists of a pad, levelled by snow, the bottom of which are contains 8 pairs of skis (for tent support and insulation). Tent is stretched on poles and fixed with...

I haven't read such. Just a passing thought. Would the furnace have scorched the top with the snow collapseing on it even if not on fire?
Maybe they scooped up snow to throw on the tent. End up building a fire trying to warm themselves before going into severe hypothermia before attempting to remove the snow.
Is there anything in the reports as to the condition of the furnace? If it was ruined them trying to start a fire would make more sense.
Then again even the most expenanced person in a life threatening situation can make a poor decision that can greatly lower chances for survival.
The hiker who took ill -- Yury Yudin - does anyone find it interesting he went on to become a cosmonaut?
I know I read or saw in one of these reports he was on a couple of major Russian space missions and was killed while on duty.
Now I can't locate it, and there's next to nothing on a net search that I could find.
Can anyone confirm this from the info?
I find it adds to the layers, or it could be a case of 'small world' stuff?
Bright lights were reported and yes there was an earlier case of 9 hikers who died on the same mountain.
Fascinating stuff, OP.
In addition to the Dyatlov Pass incident in 1959, another nine fatalities occurred in 1960, in three separate air crashes involving pilots and geologists. In 1961, the bodies of nine tourists from Leningrad were discovered.
More recently, a helicopter crashed on the approach to Mount Kholat Syakhl, with nine people aboard — although, amazingly, no one was killed. The number nine holds a morbid significance for this location.
I don't know what you mean by state of undress, but people interviewed for the Russian documentary said it was quite normal to sleep in long johns inside the sleeping bag, so they made it sound quite normal. I don't remember if they said it in part 1 or part 2:
The people in the tent would normally not been in a state of undress to start with.
I think if there was evidence the tent caught fire, it probably would have been reported. So while it's not universally true that absence of evidence is evidence of absence, in this particular case, I think it's reasonable to presume that may well be the case.
If they put out a fire (one I have never seen mentioned) in the tent, they would not head down the hill undressed and without shoes, you could reach through the holes in the tent even for shoes, but why would you not leave by the door? The furnace surely was not blocking it.
I posted the body location map here, but that's not really a very accurate description of the body locations:
And yet.. two of the bodies were buried away from the other seven. I can't find the source now.
Well of course I don't have the answers, nobody does, but I can relate the hypotheses proposed. As for how much of the tent was covered, go back in the thread and look at the picture I posted earlier, which shows how they found the tent and how much was covered. It looks like it was partially but not completely covered.
So would it be safe to assume an avalanche covered the tent? I don't know why they wouldn't quickly try to grab thier life saving garments, even if they were afraid more was coming.
I know nothing about avalanches or how they work. Would it make sense for them to try and wait a bit to make sure the coast was clear?
