I think the infrasound theory is a possibility, but is not all inclusive. That does not explain the weird broken bones and missing tongue and eyes from one of the young ladies. Just wanted to share. Have a great day!
Indeed. So I would say this remains a mystery.
Crows and Ravens will peck out the eyes of dead and dying animals, as well as humans
My best theory is the idea that there was a rocket launch that night. They would have been in their sleeping bags, heard a rumbling, roaring sound, looked up and seen a bright glowing light through their tents. That might that have been enough to scare them straight out of their tents and run.
Oh for goodness sake. The broken bones were found in people that dropped into a ravine. Ever fallen into a ravine? ice hurts. Badly. Think smashed to pieces type of hurt.
There is zero need for any alien type intervention here.
The people were in a bad place to start with (were supposed to be lower altitude inside the treeline for starters) and woefully unprepared for what the weather threw at them.
It doesn't sound like any of them were attacked. Most died of hypothermia, not injuries. The ones that had/died of serious injuries were found at the bottom of a ravine under over a meter of snow so it's not unreasonable to speculate their injuries could have been sustained as a result of falling into the ravine.
I think if it can be established that they ALL died from being attacked, with no signs of self-inflicted injury, then it is known that something external to the group was present at the time.
It doesn't seem to be a matter of debate among those that investigated it. What is a matter of debate and uncertainty is why they did it and why they left.
You are certain they cut the tent?
This is reaching at best. The hikers didn't all die from exposure. There was evidence of massive blunt trauma in some victims and signs of radiation in others. I usually don't bitch about people writing books but the mention of it in the very first line of the article is a bit suspect. "Infrasound induced panic"? No.
My theory is they had some form of naturally accruing L S D in there food.
There have been cases of rye mold that formed L S D.
One very bad trip.edit on 24-12-2013 by ANNED because: (no reason given)
The fact that the older guy was obviously military intel, that even though people had boots for both inside and outside the tent they fled with none, that cameras and other specific items were hidden or went missing, and that the Russian government knew to use a geiger counter to search for the bodies, leads me to like the “KGB/CIA spy mission gone wrong” version of events the best.
I cannot think of anything that would cause me to cut through the inside of my tent to escape it faster then going through the door, especially on an old tent like that which had no zippers. Its more likely that whoever was searching inside that tent for intel materials cut the hole to watch that the party members didn't come back and jump them. Other than there being a directly dangerous person or animal in the campsite, I cannot think of anything that would be localized enough that I would flee only a few dozen yards away and not attempt to return to the campsite rather then die of exposure.
Their investigation, to be published Nov. 7 in the journal Science, showed that the explosion caused a shockwave strong enough to knock people off their feet. The damage spread up to 55 miles around the point of impact, as the shockwave shattered windows in 3,600 apartment blocks and collapsed a factory roof.
The asteroid reached its brightest and hottest -- glowing 30 times brighter than the sun -- a mere 18 miles from the ground. The glow left observers with retina and skin burns -- one resident, who made the mistake of looking at the asteroid from 18 miles away, later lost skin due to the radiation burns.
The tongue thing makes me wonder. In the autopsy report, it indicates that the man's tongue was removed while he was still alive. He had blood in his stomach that he had swallowed after his tongue (and associated muscles beneath it) had been removed.
Just how did that happen?
