I'm posting this here as opposed to the science section because science has failed to render a conclusion about happened.
In 1908 hundreds of square miles of Siberian forest were flattened and burned by a mysterious fireball. Only now, nearly nine decades later, are we
learning what really happened--and not a minute too soon a vast fireball raced through the dawn sky over Siberia, then exploded with the force of
1,000 Hiroshima bombs. The heat incinerated herds of reindeer and charred tens of thousands of evergreens across hundreds of square miles. For days,
and for thousands of miles around, the sky remained bright with an eerie orange glow--as far away as western Europe people were able to read
newspapers at night without a lamp. The effect was much like that of a great volcanic eruption, yet there had been no eruption. The only objective
indication of the extraordinary event was a quiver on seismographs in the Siberian city of Irkutsk, indicating a moderate quake some 1,000 miles north
in a remote region called Tunguska.
Some have asserted that it was only a comet or meteor. However, no meteor fragments or impact craters were found in the area. Others have asserted
that it was a mini-black hole. But, this may be stretching current science a bit. Consequently, we now turn your attention to what does seem to fit
the facts. Researchers into Tesla's work have come to the concensus that it was probably one of his experiments. In the beginning of the 1900s, he
was building Wardenclyffe, to transmit messages and electrical power all over the globe. But, by 1908, he had fallen into bad economic straights, with
the project not fully completed. However, calculations on his potential power outputs indicate that a sudden burst of his equipment could have
produced a massive electrical storm or even EMP. Moreover, others have pointed out that Tesla published claims of coming up with some kind of death
ray, to make war obsolete, at this time! The facts seem to fit. Another theory is a conjunction of the theory that the exploding object was an alien
spacecraft as well as the theory that Tesla was experimenting with his electrical devices. This theory suggests that Tesla accidentily "shot down"
an alien space craft with his display.
opinions or other theories?
